A Glen Burnie teen-ager charged with firing a gun in a hallway of Old Mill High School has surrendered to authorities, Anne Arundel County police said.
Accompanied by his parents and a lawyer, Aaron Davis, 16, turned himself in at the Eastern District police station about 1 p.m. Monday.
He was charged last week as an adult with illegal possession and firing of a handgun, disturbing school operations, possessing a deadly weapon on school property and making false statements to an officer.
Davis, of Green Leaf Terrace, has been released on a $5,000 bond into the custody of his father, police said.
School officials expressed relief at the arrest. "I'm glad that he did turn himself in," said Jane Beckett-Donohue, a schools spokeswoman. "I think we feel better that there's some resolution here."
No one was injured in the incident Dec. 17, which forced the school into a two-hour lockdown. The firing of the gun is believed to have been accidental. Police recovered the weapon in a boys restroom.
