BALTIMORE — A student at Frederick Douglass High School was arrested after bringing a gun to school on Friday.

School administrators at the high school notified Baltimore City School Police that a gun was on the premises. Officers arrived and quickly located and secured the weapon.

Baltimore City Schools spokesperson says that the gun was never used to threaten anyone and that the situation was quickly brought under control.

The student who was responsible for the weapon was taken into custody without incident. However, under City Schools' student Code of Conduct, a student who brings a weapon on school grounds faces the maximum consequences, including possible permanent expulsion.

This isn't the first time that a gun was brought onto Frederick Douglass High School's grounds. Earlier this year, a special education assistant/hall monitor was shot by an adult visitor at the school.
