QUEENS -- Officials are investigating after a 15-year-old boy brought a loaded gun to school in Queens Thursday and threatened another student, a police source tells PIX11 News.

Officers responded to York Early College Academy on 167th Street around 9 a.m. where staff said the teen had a loaded .38 revolver with him. They told police that a girl overheard the teen threatening another student with the gun.

School safety agents confiscated the gun and called police. According to the police source, the mother of the boy said he was being bullied.

Charges are pending, but the teen will not be named since he is a juvenile.

This is the second incident this week where a student has brought a school to a Queens school. The first incident happened Wednesday when an 11-year-old boy brought his grandfather's loaded gun to P.S. 40 in Queens and threatened a student.
