A Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School student was sent to Alameda County Juvenile Hall for bringing an unloaded gun to school. 

Berkeley Police Department spokesperson Andrew Frankel said Berkeley police received a call from school staff a little after 1 p.m. on Dec. 16 reporting the incident. 

Frankel said Berkeley police arrived at the scene and confiscated the gun. Berkeley police then arrested the student and transported the student to Juvenile Hall. Frankel was not able to give the age of the student. He said that the Alameda County district attorney's office would decide whether to press charges against. Calls to Berkeley Unified School District officials were not returned by press time.
