WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- A teen is accused of having a gun at Carver High School, according to a news release from Winston-Salem police.

A 16-year-old boy is charged with possession of a firearm on educational property and possession of a handgun by a minor.

On Friday, Winston-Salem police got a report that someone posted an image on social media showing a gun, with the background clearly showing the campus of Carver High School.

During the investigation, officers found a .22 caliber handgun at the teen's home.

Officers said there is no evidence the teen threatened staff or students and said it appears the photo was taken outside of normal school hours.

The teen was arrested and given a $1,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court April 25.
