TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A 15-year-old high school student was arrested for bringing a semi-automatic handgun to a school in north Florida.
The Leon County Sheriff's Office said that the ninth-grader at Leon High School brought the weapon to school on Thursday morning. He was spotted by another student who informed school authorities.
The student was charged with carrying a concealed firearm and for possessing a firearm on school grounds.
This is the second incident involving a student and guns in the last week in Leon County.
Last Friday - the same day as the school shootings in Connecticut - a student at Florida A&M University Developmental Research School was found with a firearm in his book bag. The student, who had been threatening suicide, was taken into custody by FAMU police.
