COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Columbus Division of Police says a 17-year-old Briggs High School student has been arrested for bringing a gun to school.
Police say two students approached school resource officer Francis Martin and said they overheard another student say he had a gun. The school safety security officer searched the student and did not find a gun, so brought Martin the student’s backpack from his locker. Officer Martin found a gun and two rounds in the student’s backpack.
The student was arrested. He will be charged with illegal conveyance of a firearm on school premises, and carrying a concealed weapon, both felonies.
