A Mojave High School student was arrested with a loaded handgun Wednesday, according to Clark County School District Police.

The student, a 15-year-old boy, was arrested shortly after school was let outnear the football field, Mojave principal Greg Cole said in a letter to parents.

The letter also said the student had been absent from school the entire day before arriving on campus in the afternoon. No threats were made to students or the school, Cole said.

Please take this opportunity to discuss school safety with your students. If they ever face a situation where they are unsure whether or not to share information with an adult, please remind them to never hesitate reporting anything that may be a safety issue.

Additionally, we wish to remind all of our families that no weapons, including toy weapons, are permitted anywhere on our school campus, as we take the personal safety of each and every student very seriously.

Police recovered a loaded .40 caliber handgun from the boy at about 3:20 p.m.

He faces charges of possession of a firearm on school property and expulsion, CCSD Police said.

The student had been reported by an adult.
