Charges filed in King Philip gun case


Wrentham police have charged a Plainville teen with illegal possession of a dangerous weapon for an incident in which the teen allegedly brought a gun to King Philip High School, Police Chief Joseph Collamati said.

Collamati said three students told police they saw the gun at school.

The 15-year-old defendant is being held at a Rhode Island youth detention facility for violating his probation there. He also faces a gun charge in Plainville, along with several traffic charges.

Plainville police say the teen fled the scene of an accident and admitted to disposing of a gun. Police later found the weapon.
