SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Police in Sioux Falls say they arrested a 16-year-old student for bringing a stolen gun to school.

Lincoln High School Principal Valerie Fox says no students were threatened or harmed. The school was not placed on lockdown, and classes continued as normal.

Police say a fellow student noticed the boy acting strangely on Thursday, and the boy took off running after a teacher confronted him. A school resource officer caught up with him and found a 9 mm handgun in his backpack.

Sioux Falls Police spokesman Sam Clemens says the handgun was stolen in Sioux Falls and had an altered serial number.

The boy’s name was not released.
