PLAQUEMINE, La. (AP) - A 16-year-old Plaquemine High student has been released to his parent’s custody after his arrest for bringing a loaded gun to school and threatening to use it on another student.

Maj. Ronnie Hebert, of the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office, tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1Lix14p) a school resource officer found a .22-caliber semi-automatic pistol hidden in the teenager’s book-bag inside his locker at the school’s athletic field house on Friday.

Hebert says the teenager, who lives in Maringouin (MAR’-in-gwin), had gotten into a fight with another student the previous day. Officials believe he brought the gun to school with the intention of harming the other kid.

The teen spent the weekend in the Assumption Parish Youth Detention Center before appearing before a judge Monday and was released on house arrest.
