Student arrested with gun at Vicksburg school

VICKSBURG, Miss. —  

A teenager charged with bringing a handgun to Vicksburg High School has been released from jail on a $15,000 bond.

Police Lt. Sandra Williams tells the Vicksburg Post that the 17-year-old was released Thursday morning.

The teen was arrested Wednesday after school officials were tipped off that he had brought a handgun to school. Williams says the youth has been charged with one count of possessing a weapon on school property.

Williams says a school resource officer disarmed the teenager without incident and arrested him.

Vicksburg Warren School District Superintendent Elizabeth Swinford says the youth will face a disciplinary review committee to determine his punishment. He has been suspended.
