CLARKSTON -- School officials in Clarkston say police have arrested a juvenile student who had an unloaded handgun and an illegal switchblade knife at an alternative school in that south-eastern Washington city.
The Lewiston (Idaho) Tribune reported that no threats were made to anyone at the Educational Opportunity Center and the student did not have any ammunition when police picked him up Tuesday afternoon.
In a statement, Clarkston School District officials said the district and Clarkston police had worked together to intervene with the same student "on a non-school-related matter" that happened Monday evening. That information led officers to locate the student at school on Tuesday.
The gun was described as a .22-caliber automatic.
The student was booked into juvenile detention on multiple accusations.
