A 16-year-old Federal Way High School student was arrested Monday for bringing a handgun to school, according to police.
The boy showed the gun to another person, who immediately told school administrators, police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock said.
The school was put into lockdown at 11:36 a.m., Schrock said, and officers came to search for the student, who left the campus.
Todd Beamer High School was put into lockdown for a time as a precaution, she said.
Never miss a local story.
Schrock said the student was found at his home and arrested. The firearm was found to have been stolen and was seized.
He was arrested on suspicion of having a dangerous weapon on a school campus, Schrock said.
