MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — The Muskegon County Prosecutor’s Office says an Oakridge High School student wanted for allegedly bringing a gun to school has been arrested, and the search for the weapon is over.

Keith Joseph Schillaci, 18, faces a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon onto school property. The prosecutor’s office authorized the charge Friday.

Schillaci allegedly brought the handgun to a construction site operated by the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center and to Oakridge High School during classes Tuesday.

He’s since been suspended by both schools, according to the prosecutor. Students and parents have been notified about the situation.

It’s unclear why Schillaci was carrying the gun, but the prosecutor’s office doesn’t believe he intended to use the weapon.

Authorities initally suspected the gun may have been tossed in a field near the Sherman Avenue Wal-Mart, but officers found it in “another non-public location,” according to Muskegon County Prosecutor Tim Maat.
