An 18-year-old student who is accused of bringing a gun into Worthington Kilbourne High School has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges, according to Jean Lewis, a public-information officer for prosecuting attorney Ron O'Brien.
Domonic Michael Keaton of northwest Columbus faces charges of carrying a concealed weapon, a fourth-degree felony, and possession of a deadly weapon on school property, a fifth-degree felony, according to Franklin County Court of Commons Pleas records.
Keaton was arraigned Feb. 6, according to Franklin County Municipal Court documents.
His case was transferred from municipal court to common-pleas court Feb. 14 and an indictment was filed, according to court documents.
Another hearing was held Feb. 19. His bond was set at $2,000, and he posted bond and was scheduled to be released, according to court documents.

According to a Feb. 5 email from Worthington Schools Assistant Superintendent Randy Banks, Keaton brought an unloaded handgun and ammunition for the gun to Worthington Kilbourne the same day.
According to the Columbus Division of Police report, at 10:08 a.m, a student alerted school staff members to a video that had been posted on social media of Keaton holding a handgun at the school. The student forwarded a screenshot of the video to staff members.
