Eloy police say a 13-year-old middle school student was taken into custody after another student reported seeing him brandishing and showing off a handgun.

A police statement says the boy didn't make any threatening statements but reportedly took the gun to Toltec Middle School on Tuesday for protection because other students had threatened to assault him.

Police say "charges are pending the outcome of the investigation."
