SAN ANTONIO -

A Brandeis High School student is facing some serious charges after district officials say he ground a sword to campus.

Northside Independent School District said that the sword was a collector’s replica, but had a 15-inch blade and is still considered a weapon.

Officials say the boy approached a group of students on campus before school Thursday morning and threatened one of them with a sword.

He now faces charges of making a terroristic threat and possessing an illegal weapon on school property.
