Louisiana high school student arrested for weapon at school
MANDEVILLE, La. (AP) — A 15-year-old Louisiana high school student has been arrested for bringing a weapon to his school.
The male teenager was arrested Thursday on a charge of terrorizing and transported to the Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center. The student’s name was not released because of his age.
St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were alerted Thursday after school administrators at Fontainebleau High School were notified after school hours that a student was seen earlier in the day with a weapon on the school campus. A spokesman for the sheriff’s office would not provide details about the weapon, citing an ongoing investigation.
“We have made it very clear that threats like this will be taken seriously,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “We will continue to work with our schools and investigate any and all threats at our schools or to the students and faculty who attend them.”
