Police in Cleburne, south of Fort Worth, arrested a 14-year-old student who allegedly brought a gun onto the city’s high school campus.

Officers took the teen into custody Tuesday morning without incident.

Cleburne High School said he was searched based on a tip to campus administrators. Police said he had a 22-caliber handgun. It’s not clear if it was loaded or if he made any threats.

 “Student safety is always our first concern,” Principal Dr. Le’Ann Downs said. “We continue to emphasize the importance of ‘see something, say something,’ and this incident reflects the value in that. We are also very grateful to our SROs and police department in their quick and professional response to this situation.”

The Cleburne school district said classes were not interrupted and there are no ongoing concerns about student safety.
