Portland [Ore.] police Saturday identified the teenager they say carried a loaded shotgun into Parkrose High School — and caused a massive scare Friday — as Angel Granados Dias.

Dias, 18, was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center at 12:03 a.m., some 12 hours after he reportedly was subdued and taken into custody.

Police also released a photo of the shotgun they say Dias brought into the school.

Dias was lodged [sic] on accusations of possession of a loaded firearm in a public place, reckless endangerment and two counts of possession of a firearm in a public building, according to jail records.

Dias is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in Multnomah County Circuit Court at 2 p.m. Monday.
