NORWALK - Norwalk police say they arrested a 15-year-old boy today for bringing a pellet gun to a football game at Brien McMahon High School Friday night.

According to police, the student turned himself in today. He is charged with reckless endangerment, a misdemeanor.

"The schools have a zero tolerance policy as the police department does as well," says Sgt. Lisa Cotto of the Norwalk Police Department. "We have a zero tolerance policy if you bring any type of weapon to school - knives, guns, as well as narcotics, drugs, marijuana, cocaine, we don't put up with that and this is why he was ultimately arrested."

Police say no one was hurt in the incident and that the student does not have a criminal past.  He has been suspended from school.

The Norwalk Public Schools superintendent says he's conducting his own investigation into the incident, but cannot talk about the case due to the student's age.
