Two Basic High School students have been arrested for bringing guns on campus on Dec. 13.
According to Las Vegas police, officers showed up at Basic High school to arrest a student they had been investigating. Shortly after 9 a.m., they took the student into custody and discovered a .32 caliber gun on him.
CCSD police then began their own investigation and learned there was a connection with another student at the school. They located the second student, who they say is 16 years old, around 11:30 a.m. and found a .40 caliber gun in his possession.
CCSD police say both students were taken to a juvenile detention center and booked for possession of a dangerous weapon on school property.
“I was just surprised, kind of shocked about it, because out of al my four years here, I wouldn’t have thought about it eve happening at our school,” said Shawn Imperial, student. “I’m really glad that we have school police on our campus because it keeps our campus safe.”
A Basic High school student was arrested in October for bringing an unloaded BB gun on campus.
