Las Vegas high student arrested for having handgun on campus

A Sierra Vista High School student was arrested on Tuesday morning after officials found a loaded gun in his possession on campus.

Clark County School District police Capt. Roberto Morales said the student was on probation and was found to be in possession of a .45-caliber firearm during a random search by state parole authorities at the southwest valley school.

Charges are pending, Morales said, but would at a minimum include possession of a firearm on school property.
