A former English High School student brought an unloaded handgun with him to the Jamaica Plain campus on Wednesday, according to Boston police.

School police officers apprehended the 17-year-old boy after they saw him trespassing on English High property, officials said. School police, who knew the teen had been a student there, then called Boston officers.

After questioning him on why he was at the school, city police searched his backpack and found a gun. Police do not believe the gun was loaded.

The youth — whose identity was not released — was charged with trespassing and unlawfully possessing a firearm.
