A 16-year-old Hilton Head student is in police custody for bringing a gun to school. Beaufort County deputies arrested the high school student Monday afternoon at a convenience store near Hilton Head High School. They say he had a handgun visibly tucked into his pants.
According to the sheriff's office, his ex-girlfriend told them he pointed the gun at her while walking from the high school to the middle school. Deputies sent the boy to the juvenile detention center in Columbia.
