A Columbus North freshman is facing punishment after being accused of bringing pellet gun to school Tuesday morning. Our news-gathering partners at “The Republic” are reporting that the boy had posted a photo of himself, with the gun, on social media. That posting resulted in multiple students informing school staff, says the report.

The paper reports that the teen was removed from the campus and is suspended. Additional action may be forthcoming. School staff confiscated the pellet gun.
