A high school student in Little Rock was arrested after being found with a gun and loaded magazine Monday.
According to LRSD, a random scan at Hall High School found an unloaded 9mm gun and the magazine on a 16-year-old student. According to police, the student was arrested, charged with possession of a handgun by a minor on school grounds, and taken to juvenile intake.
The district says safety and security personnel confiscated the gun and magazine, and the student was disciplined according to the student handbook.
LRSD officials say information received indicates that this was an isolated event, but as a result of the discovery, Little Rock Police school-based resource officers and security personnel are conducting a full school scan of the student body.
LRSD requires quarterly scans of all students on campuses, three random scans of students and two random scans of lockers. Schools may elect to do them more frequently. Hall conducts one random scan of five rooms daily.
In a news release, LRSD stated the following:
"Please be assured we are constantly working to ensure the safety of the student body, faculty and staff of all students. We will provide you additional information as it becomes available. If you have further concerns or questions, feel free to contact principal, John Daniels, at 501-447-1902."
