A 17 year old male student at Central High School in Omaha was found in possession of a loaded handgun during school hours Thursday. Omaha Public Schools spokesperson Luanne Nelson says a student reported the incident to the school resource officer and to a principal. The student who was in possession of the 22 caliber loaded handgun told school officials another student had brought the weapon to school and gave it to him.
When that student found out school officials were looking for him, he ran from the building. Nelson says there were no threats made and the situation was handled quickly and the student in possession of the gun was removed from the building.
Both 17 year olds face expulsion.
