JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — STORY: One dead, one wounded in Clay County Publix
A student was arrested Tuesday after a loaded firearm was found at First Coast High School on Tuesday.
School administrators got a tip from a student about another student bringing a gun to campus, principal Timothy Simmons told parents in a recorded call.
The student was found to have a loaded firearm, which was confiscated. That student now faces criminal charges and possibly expulsion. No students or staff were harmed or threatened, Simmons said.
Last school year, students were arrested in relation to bringing guns onto the First Coast High School campus. In January, two students were arrested after they were found to be in possession of a stun gun. Also in January, a 17-year-old student was arrested and charged after allegedly bringing a gun to First Coast High.
