SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

A 14-year-old student at W.W. Lewis Middle School in Sulphur was arrested Thursday morning after bringing an unloaded gun to school, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said the boy was booked into the Juvenile Detention Center and will be charged with possession of a dangerous weapon on school grounds.

"Detectives learned that after school on Wednesday, students reported to the assistant principal that the 14-year-old had brought a gun to school and was showing it to other students," Myers said Friday in a news release.

"We were notified Thursday morning and (deputies were) at the school to search the student when he arrived on campus. An unloaded handgun was located in his waistband."
