Sheriff's deputies acting on a tip from another student arrested an Iowa High School Student yesterday after a loaded gun was discovered in that student's backpack. The student was arrested and charged with one count of illegal carrying of a weapon in a firearm-free zone.

The Calcasieu Parish School Board responded to the incident with this post on their Facebook Page.

It should be noted that the gun was loaded but the student never took the weapon out of his backpack. The gun was noticed by another student who informed faculty members.
