    A Maryland high school student accused of bringing a loaded gun to school will remain in custody for now.

    A judge Tuesday denied his lawyer’s request to release him to his parent's custody, the Frederick News-Post reported. The judge said it’s in the best interest of the entire community. 

    The student will  eventually be placed in a behavior modification program.

    The teen was arrested seven weeks ago after taking a handgun and extra ammunition to Tuscarora High School in Frederick.

    Witnesses said the 15-year-old boy showed the weapon to some classmates, but did not threaten anyone.

    He faces four firearms charges.
