A 16-year-old boy reportedly left a loaded ghost gun hidden in a book bag outside his Brooklyn school Thursday — possibly to avoid detection, an NYPD spokeswoman said.
The teen’s girlfriend, also a 16-year-old student, warned Street Academy High School officials that her boyfriend planned to take the gun to school, cops said.
Authorities were waiting at 832 Marcy Avenue when the school day started – but the boy was not in possession of a gun.
Police then searched the area outside the school where there are scanners to detect firearms and found the ghost gun around 11 a.m. in a book bag hidden in bushes across the street, the spokeswoman said.
The gun was loaded with seven bullets.
The 16-year-old was questioned by the police.
