    PORTLAND Oregon (KPTV) — A 13-year-old is in custody after a threat at a Southeast Portland school Monday.

East Precinct officers were dispatched just after 4 p.m. to the Creative Science School at 1231 Southeast 92nd Avenue after receiving reports of a former student in tactical gear with a gun. Callers reported the former student was threatening to commit a shooting.

Police say they found the teen near the intersection of Southeast 92nd Avenue and Southeast Stark Street. The 13-year-old was wearing a tactical vest, helmet, goggles and carrying what appeared to be a Glock handgun, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

After being confronted by officers, the teen surrendered and was taken into custody.

Officers then determined the gun was a realistic-looking replica.

The 13-year-old was taken to the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center and was charged with Menacing with a Firearm and Disorderly Conduct.
