A 15-year-old boy was arrested after he brought a loaded gun to his school Tuesday, according to the Grand Rapids Police Department.
Staff at Lighthouse Charter Academy, 1260 Ekhart St. NE, learned the student had the weapon concealed in his possession and called 911.
Officers were dispatched at 10:25 a.m. and talked to the boy inside the building.
He had the .38 caliber handgun with him.
The teen was taken into custody and transported to the Kent County Juvenile Detention Center.
Superintendent Heidi Cate released a statement Tuesday afternoon saying that staff members were informed of the gun by another student.
The student carrying the gun has been suspended, the statement said, pending a disciplinary hearing by the school board.
Cate reiterated that no other students were threatened by the student found in possesion of the weapon.
