    Police were called to Avon Middle School on Friday after a student brought a stun gun to school.

    While at school, the 7th-grade student showed the stun gun to other students, who then reported the weapon to a teacher, according to police.

    The teacher took the device and the student to the principal, who then called police.

    The student never tried to "shock" anyone with the stun gun and didn't threaten anyone, police said.

    The student was issued a juvenile summons with the charge of carrying a dangerous weapon.
