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.

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.
