A Dobie High School student accused of bringing a gun to school is now facing criminal charges. A district spokesperson said the 17-year-old sophomore was with another student when one of them dropped the handgun. A school employee found the gun, and Pasadena ISD police were called.

The spokesperson believes the student may have brought the gun to school to show friends, rather than having any intent to harm anyone.
