A 16-year-old Virginia high school student faces charges after authorities discovered a loaded on the school bus he was riding home.
Goochland County Sheriff James L. Agnew says the .22-caliber pistol was found Friday after a Goochland High School assistant principal and the school's resource officer got a tip about it.
Agnew said the bus carrying the student was stopped as it was pulling away from Goochland High School and the student was removed.
However, he said the teen couldn't immediately be charged because the county's juvenile intake officers were on furlough Friday. The teen was released to his parents.
