Tifton - A hearing has been set for the fourth grader accused of bringing a gun to a Tift County school late last month.

10-year old Markel Stevenson is scheduled to appear in juvenile court tomorrow morning. He is charged with three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of terroristic threats, and bringing a firearm to school. Students accused him of threatening them with a loaded gun.

Stevenson's lawyer says he was expelled from Charles Spencer Elementary and banned from attending any Tift County public schools.

Markel doesn't meet the requirements at the only alternative school in Tift County which doesn't take students until they are in the sixth grade.
