UPDATE: Portales teen expelled for gun parts at school

Portales, NM - A 15-year-old who brought gun parts to Portales High School is being expelled.

After being suspended for ten days, school officials decided at a hearing Tuesday that the teen can not come back.

Police were called to the school two weeks ago when teachers say the boy showed them a nine-millimeter gun barrel.

Administrators found several other gun parts in his backpack, but say there were not enough to put together a working weapon.
