He will remain in juvenile detention until his preliminary hearing which has been scheduled for Sept. 6.
The judge ordered the boy to stay in juvenile detention until his next court hearing on Sept. 6.
UPDATE @ 4:42 p.m. (Aug. 29):
Sidney High School administrators were notified of the loaded weapon when a female student revealed to her teacher a text message chain, said Sidney Schools Superintendent John Scheu.
Another female student had texted her friend that a ninth grade male student was showing a gun in a classroom or in the school somewhere.
Scheu said at that point, it was identified which classroom, but not which student had the gun.
"Students were evacuated by rows," Scheu said, in areas outside the classroom in question. "Then we did a sweep."
The school administrators did not announce anything over the announcement system.
"We did not want to alarm the students; we didn't want to put the students in a tizzy," Scheu said. "We quietly and very quickly locked the classroom doors in that area."
It was a loaded pistol found in the male student's backpack. The male, from Sidney, will face multiple felony charges.
The district does not have metal detectors at the schools, Scheu said. There are seven school buildings and each one has an armed security guard.
"We instruct students to notify the proper authorities," Scheu said.
