EWING - Police in Ewing Township aren't saying how a 12-year-old boy got his hands on a stun gun, but the district's superintendent said it will press charges that could result in a juvenile sentence.

Electric weapons like Tasers and stun guns are illegal to carry in New Jersey, but are sold online.

According to reports, the 12-year-old said he needed the gun for protection, but the superintendent issued a statement that said, "There is no evidence to suggest that the student involved...was being bullied or threatened in any way. The student will be disciplined according to Board policy."

The weapon was found when another student reported it.
