WOODLAND, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California high school student is in trouble after police say he brought a handgun to school.
Police arrested a Woodland High School student around 12:45 p.m. Friday after getting a call from school administrators about a student on campus with a gun.
When Woodland police officers arrived they found the student in class with a handgun in his backpack.
Police say the gun was not loaded.
The student, who has not been named because of his age, was booked into Juvenile Hall for possession of a firearm on school grounds.
Investigators say it appears the boy did not have a malicious reason for bringing the gun to school.
