A BB gun was located on Hart High School’s campus, resulting in the arrest of a 15-year-old on Tuesday, according to Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station officials.
According to Hart Principal Jason d’Autremont, Hart received a CAREText tip from a student that referenced a possible weapon on campus.
“Campus supervisors, administrators and our school resource officer immediately followed up and within minutes were able to determine that the item of concern was only a BB gun,” wrote d’Autremont in a message to Hart parents.
According to Deputy Natalie Arriaga, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, the BB gun was recovered from the 15-year-old’s backpack.
“At no point in time were threats ever made against students or the school,” wrote Arriaga in an email to The Signal.
The 15-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of possession of a BB gun on campus, according to Arriaga.
