A Little Rock student was arrested Monday morning after authorities discovered he was in possession of a handgun at school.
A Little Rock police report states that officers were called to Hall High School about 10:05 a.m. by school security. According to the report, a school security officer performing a random classroom scan searched the 16-year-old student, whose name was withheld, and found a handgun hidden on him.
Students were asked to clear the classroom as a result.
Although the 9mm handgun wasn't loaded, the report states an ammunition clip was found in the student's gym shorts, which he was wearing under his jeans. The student was taken into custody without incident.
The gun was taken by authorities and stored as evidence. The student was taken to the juvenile detective division for questioning and charged with possession of a handgun on school grounds.
