ELKHORN -- Chilling Snapchat video surfaced of a teen loading bullets into a gun clip that has stunned students at school.

It outraged one parent who sent this video to our newsroom.

The teen—who we are not identifying—told investigators after he was arrested he did not want to hurt anyone.

In the video, you see a gun clip and bullets. Police found a loaded .22 Caliber gun on the 15 year old at school. An alert student brought it to a school leader's attention.

"As far as we know from the student, he was staying at an extended family member's home he came across the gun and he wanted to take it home," said Jason Tadlock, Elkhorn Area School District Administrator.

Parents were notified over the weekend what happened Friday. The school said they cannot say how the student has been disciplined.
