    There are two possibilities:

    Deadly Weapon (1989)

    starring Rodney Eastman, Susan Blu, Gary Frank, Michael Horse, Sasha Jenson, Walter Koenig, Gary Kroeger, Sam Melville, Ed Nelson, Joe Regalbuto, William Sanderson

    IMDb synopsis:

    An experimental gun powered by an atomic reactor is misplaced when the transport carrying it crashes into a river. The weapon soon falls into the hands of a bullied teen named Zeke, who uses it to get even with his persecutors. An Army team led by the overzealous Lt.. Dalton is sent to recover the weapon before its unstable reactor overloads and causes a meltdown.

    Here are a couple of film clips though the quality isn't very good:

    Laserblast (1978)

    starring Kim Milford, Cheryl Smith, Dennis Burkley, Eddie Deezen (film debut), Keenan Wynn, Roddy McDowall

    IMDb synopsis:

    Alien creatures kill a mutated alien creature in the California desert, its remains and the high-tech laser gun and power source accidentally are left behind. These are found by an ostracized teenager. However, the power source causes the teenager to mutate, too, and he goes on a murderous rampage.

    Here's Part 1 on YouTube:

    Unfortunately, I couldn't find "Deadly Weapon" on YouTube. By the way, that film originally was intended as a sequel to "Laserblast" until the studio ran into financial problems. I'm fairly certain the first movie is the one you saw because, in the second one, the aliens kill the transformed teen.
