The officer confronted the teen and found he was carrying the two guns and the mask. He was arrested and charged with possessing firearms on school property and for giving false names to the officer.

His name has not been released because of his age and it is unknown if he has any connection to the school, which has 600 students from preschool to eighth grade.
