PONCHATOULA- The high school here was placed on lock down earlier Wednesday as law enforcement personnel searched the campus for a gun.

During the search, the gun was found and a 15-year-old was arrested.

The student's name was not released. A spokesperson said in an email to media outlets, the teen was taken to Florida Parishes Detention Center.

"We assure you that all safety measures and procedures were followed to ensure the safety of all on campus," Dawn Panepinto said in the statement.

Panepinto said it all started when administrators received a report about a gun on campus, but she did not elaborate on the tip.
