GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a high school student who was on the rooftop of a school with weapons during a dance east of Portland was arrested.

Gresham Police said in a news release that students at Sam Barlow High School alerted staff about a person dressed in dark clothing standing on the roof near the student parking lot Saturday evening.

Police say the school’s resource officer, Jeff Culp, responded to the roof, confronted the person and determined he was student.

Police say the student had two unloaded handguns and handgun ammunition.

Police say he told the officer he was there in a security capacity to ensure the safety of students at the dance. Police say the boy was cooperative.

The student was arrested on weapons possession charges and taken to a county juvenile detention center.

Gresham is about 14 miles east of Portland.
