BRYANT, Ark. – One person is in custody after a gun was found on the Bryant High School campus Thursday.

In a message sent to parents, officials with Bryant Public Schools reported that a school resource officer found a handgun in a car on Lot A in front of Building 10.

Officials said the officer placed the individual in custody without incident and there was no interruption of normal school operations.

A social media post from the Bryant Police Department noted that the person arrested was a 17-year-old student and that gun was in the student’s vehicle.

Investigators noted that suspicions were raised when the student’s vehicle was seen parked in a lot reserved for faculty members.

School officials said they had no reason to believe there was a threat to students or staff members.

“We are thankful to our SRO for his quick handling of the situation,” the school’s statement said. “BPS is very appreciative to the City of Bryant for our continued partnership with our SRO program.”

Bryant police officials said the student will face charges through the juvenile court system.

This is the second time this week a gun was found on school property in central Arkansas as many districts have returned for the first week of class. On Monday, officials with the North Little Rock School District reported a gun being found on a student at Amboy Elementary School.
