A Brenham High School student was taken into custody after being found with a handgun on the school’s campus Monday afternoon.
Brenham Police say the schools resource officers were notified of the student possibly being in possession of the weapon, and a search of the student yielded the weapon.
The gun had a lock on it, for which the student did not have the key, so the gun could not be discharged.
The teen was taken into custody, and released to juvenile probation. The High School has since been declared secure, and it is not known how the student came into possession of the gun. The identity of the student is also unknown.
No word on any charges being filed.
