    A Washington County sixth-grader accused of bringing an unloaded gun to school has been ordered to participate in a detention alternatives program.

    Media outlets report that the boy has been suspended from Damascus Middle School. He was assigned to a home electronic monitoring system during a hearing Tuesday in Washington County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.

    School and court authorities say the boy is accused of bringing an unloaded .22-caliber pistol, a knife and several rounds of ammunition to the school Monday morning. He didn't make any threats to anyone at the school.

    Another student saw the ammunition and told a teacher.
