BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A teen was arrested Friday afternoon after he was found with a gun at a Baton Rouge school.
Sheriff's deputies arrested the ninth grader after school administrators found a gun in his pants pocket. An anonymous student told the principal of McKinley High School about the loaded .22 automatic.
The 15-year-old student has been charged with illegal carrying of a weapon on school grounds.
"It's so important that students come forward with this kind of information," said Sheriff Sid Gautreaux. "It helps us to keep everyone safe."
