A Portsmouth teenager convicted of shooting a gun inside a high school has been committed to state custody.

Sixteen-year-old Keith Elliott was sentenced Monday in Portsmouth Circuit Court.

Commonwealth's Attorney Earle Mobley told WVEC-TV that Elliott's case will be reviewed annually. The teen can remain in the juvenile justice system until he's 21.

Police said Elliott fired shots in the Woodrow Wilson High School cafeteria on April 28. No one was injured. Elliott was a student at the school who was on suspension at the time.
