GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — A West Ottawa High School student who was arrested with a gun at school has pleaded guilty to three charges he faced.

Davian Weston entered the plea Thursday in Ottawa County Circuit Court. He was charged with receiving and concealing a stolen handgun and carrying a concealed weapon — both felonies — and a misdemeanor charge of carrying a gun on school property.

The charges stem from an incident on Sept. 13, 2018 at West Ottawa High School, north of Holland.

Police say Weston — who was 17 at the time — brought a gun to school, causing a lockdown on campus after students reported it to school administrators.

Several days later, Weston was arrested again, this time for violating a condition of his bond that prohibited verbal physically abusive language. He later admitted to creating a threatening rap song in which he identified one of the students who notified administrators about the gun on Sept. 13.

His sentencing is scheduled for May 13.
