LOGAN, UT.  (AP) — A Logan teenager has been arrested after authorities say he brought a gun to school.

The Herald Journal reports the 16-year-old boy was taken into custody Monday afternoon off-campus during a lunch break.

According to a statement from Fast Forward Charter High School, other students spotted the gun in the student’s possession and informed the principal.

Logan police were called around 12:30 p.m. and a lockdown of the school was put in place.

Investigators did not say why the teen brought a firearm to campus and if he was still being held.

School officials say counselors will be available Tuesday in case students need them.
