Colorado Springs High School student arrested after allegedly bringing a loaded gun to school

24 February. A Colorado Springs High School student was arrested Friday after allegedly bringing a gun to campus, police said.

The student was arrested on “various weapons-related charges” at Sand Creek High School in District 49 on the east side of the city, according to a police bulletin and a letter to the school’s parents obtained by The Gazette.

“Based on the information received through Safe2Tell, a gun was found in a student. We want to assure you that firearms are safe and that students, staff and guests are safe,” the district said in a letter.

School staff and police were notified via a Safe2Tell report at 10:10 am that a student was in possession of a gun at school.

“SCHS administrators immediately contacted our law enforcement partners and located the student in the SCHS classroom,” the school district said in a letter. “Administrators temporarily suspended SCHS while the student was searched and confirmed that the student had a loaded gun.”

The student was then arrested and the arrest was lifted shortly after 10:20 am, according to the county.

The school administration does not know how the student got the gun.

“At this time, there is no ongoing concern for the safety of students or staff,” the police said.

The incident at Sand Creek High School was at least the third this school year in which a student was arrested at a school in Colorado Springs for possession of a firearm.

A Sierra High School student was arrested after allegedly bringing a gun to a District 2 school earlier this month. El Paso County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested a student who reportedly brought a gun and ammunition to classes at Evans Elementary School in October district 49.
