COLUMBIA — A continuance for a jury trial was granted Monday to allow the state time to review the evidence in the case of a 17-year-old arrested in connection with carrying a loaded gun into a school.

Alonzo Terell Stevens was charged with one count of possessing stolen property and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon.

Police arrested Stevens on Jan. 25 after they caught him at Douglass High School with a loaded .45-caliber handgun, according to a previous Missourian report.

Stevens and the handgun were linked to two shootings, one at Wilkes Boulevard and Paris Road and another at Town and Country Bowling, two days before his arrest, according to the article. The shooting at Wilkes and Paris resulted in two boys being sent to the hospital, according to the article.

A jury trial is scheduled for 9 a.m. July 28, according to Casenet.
