Seattle middle-school student found with gun

On Wednesday afternoon — a week after an accidental shooting at an elementary school in Bremerton — an unloaded gun was found in an eighth-grader’s backpack at a Seattle middle school.

Security found the gun Wednesday afternoon after a fellow student heard rumors that a 13-year-old classmate at Aki Kurose Middle School Academy had brought it on campus.

That student tipped off her teacher, said Lesley Rogers, a spokeswoman for Seattle Public Schools.

Seattle police interviewed the boy but provided no more information about the incident Wednesday night.
