        A 13-year-old Jacobs Center student was arrested Thursday afternoon when he was found with two guns after staff members heard him threaten some girls.

        The staffers heard the teen-ager tell some girls he “had something for them” and that he would use it, school officials told Cincinnati police. Some students ran out of the gym, a police report said.

        The staff members then stopped the boy and found a loaded .25-caliber automatic handgun and a .22-caliber, five-shot revolver. The sec ond gun was not loaded, police said.

        The incident apparently started after the teen was hit on the head with a basketball, a police report said.

        The student, who is not being named because he is a juvenile, was arrested about 12:40 p.m. and charged with having a deadly weapon on school grounds and inducing panic.

        The student was taken from the school, 4225 Winton Ridge in Winton Place, and brought to juvenile detention in Mount Auburn.

        School officials could not be reached for comment.
