TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Police in Ohio say a 14-year-old accused of bringing a pellet gun to school that caused a lockdown and short standoff has been charged.

The high school student is in custody at a juvenile jail in Toledo following the Monday morning standoff.

Police say he suffered minor injuries after officers fired a bean bag round at his feet to end the standoff. No one else was hurt.

The boy is charged with making terroristic threats and illegal conveyance of a dangerous ordnance.

Another student says the boy had been kicked out of class and sent to a room for students serving in-school suspensions.

She says he told a school police officer that he had a gun and flashed it, causing other students to flee.
