OSWEGO, Ill (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A Plainfield southwest suburban man has been charged with bringing a gun to the west suburban school where he worked, the Beacon-News is reporting.

Michael T. Martin, 62, of Plainfield, a contractual worker for the Oswego School District 308 IT Department, has been charged with unlawful use of a weapon on school property, a Class 3 felony.

He was taken to the Kendall County Jail to await a bond hearing.

Police said that at 9:12 a.m., an Oswego East High School staff member found a handgun in a locked faculty restroom on the second floor. As a safety measure, the school was put on lockdown.

The school was searched and no other weapons were found. Staff was allowed to continue teaching during the search, and by 10:15 a.m., the lockdown was ended and normal activities resumed, police said.

Police and Oswego East staff did a review of school video footage and interviewed different staff members to determine who the last person was in the restroom before the gun was found.

During the investigation, "the identity of a subject who was last in the restroom was determined and that subject was located off site for an interview," police said in a statement.

Police said there is no evidence that the subject had any intention of doing anyone any harm.
