15-year-old accused of taking gun to two schools in Kitsap County

A 15-year-old boy was arrested Friday for allegedly taking a gun into two high schools in Kitsap County, the sheriff’s office said.

The boy reportedly brought the firearm to Central Kitsap High School on Thursday, and brandished it at Raab Park in Poulsbo while trying to pick a fight with a student from another high school, the sheriff’s office said.

The boy then walked into North Kitsap High School while hiding the gun, but was asked to leave because he wasn’t a student there. He walked to a nearby park and reportedly fired one shot, the sheriff’s office said.

The firearm, which wasn’t described, was allegedly stolen from his home on Naval Base Kitsap — Bangor. The gun was recovered Thursday.

The youth was booked into the juvenile detention center for investigation of carrying a dangerous weapon on school facilities; unlawful possession of a firearm by a minor; and exhibiting, displaying or carrying a firearm with intent to intimidate, the sheriff’s office said.
