A Briar Woods High School student faces criminal charges after bringing a BB gun to school this morning.
The arrest was made Tuesday after a school resource officer was alerted that images of the student with what was later determined to be a BB gun had been posted to social media. The student was located and found to be in possession of the gun.
The student was charged as a juvenile with felony brandishing of a firearm and possession of a firearm on school property, a Class 1 misdemeanor.
He was held at the Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center.
