Student brings loaded gun to Sierra Vista High School in Las Vegas

Student brings loaded gun to Sierra Vista High School in Las Vegas”

Authorities have charged a 15-year-old Georgetown High School student after police say he made threats to "shoot up the school".

"There's a picture of what appears to be a gun on campus", Andy Pruitt, district spokesman said Thursday. Later investigation determined the student borrowed the gun from a friend two days earlier. The video was then posted on Snapchat or a similar social media outlet.

Administrators and teachers saw the gun and called the police. He was arrested on a charge of possession of a unsafe weapon on school property, Young said.

Surrounding schools were put on secured perimeter with no students allowed outside during this period of time as a precaution. He also said going into lockdown in that situation could have potentially increased the danger for students.

The student has not been officially identified by law enforcement or school officials, and the school district said it would not immediately comment on disciplinary action to be taken. Wharton said the school is working with law enforcement to "make the right decision".

The student's name will not be released because they are under the age of 18.
