MONTGOMERY CO. – A student is facing charges after, police say, he brought a pocket knife and bullets to school.

Police say they responded to Paint Branch High School Thursday morning in Burtonsville after learning what the 16-year-old student brought to school.

School administrators found the pocket knife and six rounds of handgun ammunition placed in a small, plastic sandwich bag in the boy’s possession.

After investigating the school and the boy’s home, detectives say they do not believe the student had a gun.
