Police arrest 16-year-old boy allegedly carrying loaded firearm in Dorchester school

The teen is facing multiple charges.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday morning at the Community Academy of Science and Health high school in Dorchester after school administrators found he was carrying a gun. 

Boston police said officers responded around 10:45 a.m. to the school for a report of a firearm. A small bag, which held marijuana and a loaded firearm, was found by a school administrator who searched the teen before officers arrived at the scene, according to the department.
