(Bellefonte) -- A former student has pleaded guilty to bringing an assault rifle and ammunition to the Christian high school he attended in Centre County.

Eighteen-year-old Cody Confer of Bellefonte pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of possessing a weapon on school property.

He'll be sentenced August 23rd and county prosecutors dropped a charge of terroristic threats.

Spring Township police were called to Centre County Christian Academy in Bellefonte on March 10.

That happened after Confer told an adult volunteer at the school that he had a weapon in his vehicle and "enough ammunition to shoot up the school."

Police say officers found an assault rifle and two boxes of ammunition in his car.

Confer pleaded guilty July 19, but prosecutors announced the move on Monday.
