Steven Michael Carrera, 16, was arrested and charged with possession of a concealed weapon, possession of a handgun by a minor and possession of a weapon on educational property.

The Riverside school resource officer alerted deputies after receiving an anonymous tip that a student had a handgun with him at school.

Durham County Sheriff's deputies located Carrera and found him in possession of a loaded Leinad DD 45 pistol. The ninth grader refused to say why he had the weapon on him.
