As soon as the investigation started a 16-year-old juvenile male was identified by the Sheriff's Office Deputies as the person who had brought the weapon to school.

The handgun had been previously reported as stolen out of Lafayette Parish.

He was arrested on three charges including illegal possession of a stolen firearm.
