Highlands Intermediate student bought gun

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Police say the 14 year old who claimed he found a gun at Highlands Intermediate was lying.

Investigators now believe the boy bought the semi-automatic glock from a 16 year old, and Wednesday afternoon, they arrested that 16 year old.

They also arrested his mother on unrelated warrants, including one for endangering the welfare of a child.

Last week Monday, the 14 year old accidentally fired the gun while showing it to some friends. Two children were injured. The student's father told us that his son told him, he found the gun behind the school's gym.
