A 15-year-old boy is being charged as an adult after prosecutors say he had a gun at a South Side elementary school Monday.

The principal of Mollison Elementary School called police just after 3 p.m., saying two students were taking pictures in a bathroom with the gun.

When officers searched the students, Leon Bell Jr. was found carrying a backpack with a .38-caliber revolver loaded with three live rounds.

Bell, who previously admitted guilt in juvenile court of armed robbery and theft, was ordered held in lieu of $50,000 dollars bond today, according to court documents.

    Black folk raising their children to kill each other…an entire race of people gone wild. Where's Sharpton and Jackson? Why aren't they all over news denouncing these no good parents. I guess they're fine with all the black on black crime.
