Washington High School student found with gun

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A Washington High school student was arrested Wednesday after marijuana and a gun were found in his athletic locker.

Officials say that nobody on school grounds was in any direct danger, but threats are always taken seriously.

No classes were in session yesterday as there was a Teacher Record Day but students were in attendance for an athletic practice, which is when the items were found.

The incident is under investigation, and under Indiana law, the student with the gun in his possession will be subject to a mandatory one-year expulsion.
