PHILADELPHIA, N.Y. - Authorities say quick actions by a teacher averted a potential shooting at a northern New York high school, where a 15-year-old male student had a rifle concealed in a case wrapped in a blanket.

Indian River High School teacher Bob Kuba says the student indicated he wanted to show an experiment to his earth science class on Wednesday. Kuba says that with three minutes left in the period, the student took off the blanket and when Kuba saw a gun case he grabbed the rifle before the student could and called for help.

Kuba says the student offered no resistance.

The student was taken into custody. Police say he hasn't been charged yet.

Authorities say the student had "a very detailed plan" but wouldn't reveal what it was.

The school is in the town of Philadelphia, 140 miles northwest of Albany.
