A 23-year-old man who sneaked a gun into a magnet school in Pittsburgh was disarmed by a security guard after the two wrestled and crashed through a large window near the entrance. School authorities aren't sure how he got the gun inside since the only two doors have metal detectors. Authorities say a student saw the man with the gun in a restroom and alerted the security guard. The guard went to the hospital for injuries from broken glass. The gunman went to jail and police have to determine what to charge him with. He was not named. No students were hurt and the gun wasn't fired.
