LARGO, Fla. (AP) – A Largo High School student is accused of bringing an unloaded handgun to school.

Police say they have no information that the teen intended to fire the weapon at school. The 17-year-old told police he brought the .22-caliber weapon to school on Tuesday to prevent his mother from finding it at home.

The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/1HYTlvP ) reports authorities were called after receiving a tip about the weapon. The gun and a clip of ammunition were found inside the teen’s backpack after authorities received a tip about the weapon.

He was charged with possession of a firearm on school property.
