Sheriff's office: Juvenile with gun arrested at Chaparral High School

Posted

Douglas County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested a juvenile at Chaparral High School after they say they found a loaded gun in his backpack.

"This is currently under investigation," said deputy Jason Blanchard, public information officer for the sheriff's office.

The male suspect, who is not a student at Chaparral, was spotted in the parking lot of the school by a school resource officer about 2 p.m. Nov. 14. When the officer approached the juvenile he tried to walk away, according to the sheriff's office. The officer restrained the suspect, and after searching the backpack found a loaded handgun. The juvenile was arrested and taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center.

Blanchard said they do not know why the juvenile was at the school, but he had not been inside the school and no threats were made with the gun.
