Boy brings gun to church event

A 14-year-old boy brought a gun to an event for children at First Baptist Church of North Augusta on Friday, according to a North Augusta Public Safety incident report.

A public safety lieutenant found the .45-caliber Glock 21 in the boy’s jacket after another juvenile told him others had spotted the gun in the area where they left jackets and backpacks.

The boy admitted the jacket was his but said he forgot the gun was there, according to the report. The boy was released to his mother, who told the lieutenant the gun belonged to her husband and should not have been in her son’s possession.
