Vancouver teen pleads guilty in school gun case

The Associated Press

VANCOUVER, Wash. — A Vancouver teen has pleaded guilty to stealing his father’s gun and taking it to school.

The Columbian reports 15-year-old Wyatt Michael Ball pleaded guilty Tuesday to theft and possessing a dangerous weapon on school grounds. He’ll return to court Dec. 28 to be evaluated and possibly sentenced.

Ball took the disassembled rifle-shotgun combination to Evergreen High School last Wednesday to sell it to another student. A teacher looked in the carrying case and saw the weapon, which prompted the school to evacuate.

No one was threatened.
