A high schooler in Springfield, Louisiana, has been arrested after they reportedly brought a firearm to school.
The student, 14, reportedly brought a handgun to school, which was seen by several of his classmates. They reported the gun to school officials, who took the weapon and escorted the student off of campus. The school was briefly searched out of an abundance of caution, but no threats were found.
“At no time did the student threaten any other students or employees on the campus. Students are proceeding with their normal schedule. Once the law enforcement investigation is completed, the Livingston Parish Public School System will follow appropriate policy and procedure to determine further action,” Livingston Parish School System Superintendent Joe Murphy said.
