Teen accused of bringing gun to school, bragging online
WOLCOTT, Conn. (AP) — Police say a 15-year-old accused of bringing a gun to a Connecticut high school and boasting about it online has been charged.

The teen faces charges including illegal possession of a firearm.
School officials say he did not make any threats or show the gun to anyone at school.
