A 12-year-old Amarillo boy faces two felony charges after authorities say they found a loaded handgun in his locker.
Around nine this morning police say they received a tip that a student was in possession of a gun.
They claim that in the boys locker was a 25 caliber semi-automatic pistol.
The boy has been charged with attempted aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and places weapons prohibited, both are felonies.
Parents we spoke with said they didn't think a scene this severe could play out at their children's school.
"I'm just shocked, completely shocked. I don't picture anything like that at Austin. I just can't imagine that that happens here," said Tonjia Willis.
