October 19, 2004

A 14-year-old carrying a gun was arrested yesterday outside Harlem Park Middle School after he led police on a short chase.

Police did not release the name of the boy, who is an eighth-grade pupil, school officials said. School police requested help from city police about 2:45 p.m. after the boy was spotted with a gun outside the school in the 1500 block of Harlem Ave., said city police spokeswoman Officer Nicole Monroe.

The boy threw the .38-caliber semiautomatic handgun on the ground before police captured him, Monroe said.
