Police: 17-year-old with gun arrested at Ballou High School


A student was arrested Wednesday morning after trying to enter Ballou High School in D.C. with a gun, according to Metropolitan Police Department.

Officials say no one was hurt and the gun was detected upon entering with metal detectors.

D.C. high school students must pass through metal detectors before they can enter the school. We don't know why that student brought the gun to school, but a neighborhood commissioner from Ward 8 is praising the actions of the security team that detected the gun.
