In Calcasieu Parish yesterday, Sheriff's Office detectives were notified that there was a gun on the campus of Washington Marion High School.

A student reported to the School Resource Officer that a 16-year old boy had a gun in his backpack at the school. The backpack was searched and an unloaded gun was found along with one live round wrapped in paper.

The juvenile was arrested and will be charged with possession of a weapon in a firearm free zone.

The student who reported the gun to the Resource Officer will be recommended for a reward under a special CrimeStopper program that encourages students to report guns on school campuses.
