PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL– A Palm Beach Gardens Community High School student has been arrested after they were found with a loaded gun on campus.
The student was taken into custody on Thursday after a staff member found the weapon on the student during a search for an unrelated incident.
According to a notification sent to parents, the principal reported that the gun was not used in a threatening manner.
“I would like to recognize our students and in this case our staff, for continuing to follow through with safety protocol,” the letter said. “Because of their awareness in recognizing that something did not fit, safety protocols were immediately followed and everyone was safe.”
The student is now in police custody and will face expulsion.
