BATON ROUGE - Members of a School Drug Task Force arrested an East Baton Rouge 12-year-old after they said an unloaded gun was found in his backpack.

The Task Force was called to Wedgewood Elementary around 1 p.m. after they said an anonymous student told administrators another student had a gun.

Investigators said the gun was found in the fifth-grader's backpack. They said the boy didn't make any threats, and told them he brought it to be "cool." They determined the gun was taken from a relative's residence.

The School Drug Task Force is a multi-agency unit made up of East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Deputies and Baton Rouge Police Officers.

Any students with information about this or similar incidents should notify a school administrator, or text anonymous tips to authorities by sending "CS225" plus their message to CRIMES (274637).
