Student arrested after gun found on campus

 A 10th grade student was arrested Wednesday morning after an unloaded gun was seized at a Caddo Parish high school.

Just after 9:45 a.m. on September 18, 2013, Shreveport Police personnel assigned to Huntington High School were contacted by school security officials after receiving tips about a possible weapon being on campus.  Police quickly located and detained a 15 year old male student and subsequently discovered an unloaded .40 caliber handgun in the student's waistband.  According to preliminary investigation, the student provided no explanation for possessing the weapon, and officials were not made aware of any threats that were communicated. 

The school was not placed on lock-down status and parents were notified of the incident.  The 15 year old was charged with carrying a firearm or dangerous weapon by a student on school property and illegal possession of a handgun by a juvenile.  The teen was subsequently booked into the Caddo Parish Juvenile Detention Center.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
