He is charged with carrying a firearm without a license, two counts of possession of a large capacity firearm, possession of a firearm without a license, carrying a dangerous weapon on school grounds and defacing a serial number on a firearm.

His bail was set at $2,000 cash. If he chooses to post it, he will have to wear a GPS bracelet, remain under house arrest, and have no contact with the school.

Police said an anonymous tip to the school resource officer about a picture posted online led to the arrest.

Healy is expected to return to court on March 28.
