Christopher Freeman, 27, was first greeted by a school police officer around 4 p.m. when he went to Bear Lakes Middle School in West Palm Beach, according to police - and it appeared Freeman, who was in a wheelchair, had a gun in his trousers, the Sun Sentinel reports.

The middle school was placed on lockdown.

Palm Beach County School District police have identified a parent accused of bringing a loaded gun to Bear Lakes Middle School on Monday. Freeman said the boy, who was in tears, told him a teacher had slammed him. "I've got something for him", the report stated.

Police said the school's Assistant Principal called Freeman earlier in the day, and Freeman told him, "If this isn't my son, you're all dead".

An arrest report described Freeman as clearly angry, according to WPTV, and police said Freeman shouted: "I want to see the guy who slammed my son".

A school police officer greeted Freeman when he arrived on campus. "Freeman said he was very upset and came to the school". Police say they found an AK-47 Mini Draco pistol with an extended 30-round magazine and a bullet in the chamber, the Sun Sentinel reports. Police said Freeman told them he didn't realize the gun was on him at the time, or that guns weren't allowed at the school, according to the TV station. He said he forgot he had it with him and said he didn't know that it was against school rules.

Freeman was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm on school grounds, aggravated assault with a weapon, and disrupting a school function.

Freeman is now being held on $75,000 bond but could have his bond revoked as a result of another outstanding criminal case.

His next scheduled court appearance is April 4. "We're interested in seeing if there is any security video from school because there were allegations about his child being hit".
