A Gaffney High student has been charged after it was reported to police that he brought a gun to school and pointed it at another student.

According to incidents provided by the Gaffney Police Department, a student at Gaffney High reported that as he was walking up the stairs to class 17-year-old Gabriel Craig approached him and said he was "packing heat in his pants."

The student then told Craig he was "full of crap," according to the report.

The student then told officers that he saw Craig in class showing the gun and what appeared to be marijuana to a fellow classmate, according to police.

It was reported that Craig then approached the victim, pulled out the gun, pointed it at him and said "who's full of crap now", according to police.

According to the incident report the student didn't tell anybody until he got to the Cherokee Technology Center campus.

Superintendent of Cherokee County schools Quincie Moore said the suspect was searched at the Cherokee Technology Center campus immediately after the incident was reported to administration, but no weapon was found.

Moore said Craig had violated discipline code and his parents were called to remove him from campus.

A warrant was signed for Craig's arrest and he was taken into custody where he confessed to bringing a weapon to school, Moore said.

According to online records provided by the Cherokee County detention center, Craig is charged with pointing and presenting a firearm at a person and carrying a weapon on school property.
