A 15-year-old boy has been arrested for having a gun at a school with six live rounds in his pocket and book bag.

It happened on Thursday in Cleveland at the East Clark School on East 146th Street.

A police report shows the boy had a .357 Magnum.

A staff member saw him in the hallway with other kids around him, and she later saw him acting suspiciously. A security officer then searched the teen, and he admitted he had a gun in his waistband.

The boy told school officials he brought the gun to school for "everybody's protection."

The boy was taken to the Juvenile Detention Hall.
