Officers Find Loaded Gun In Luther Burbank High School Student's Backpack

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A student at Luther Burbank High School has been arrested after law enforcement officers found a gun in the youth's backpack.

The Sacramento County Probation Department says its officers visited the school on Wednesday to follow up on information about a student who was possibly in possession of a gun.

Officers were able to track down the student. A probation search was then done of the student's backpack - and that's when officers found a loaded Glock 9mm pistol.

Later, a probation search of the student's home also uncovered an extra 27-round magazine.

The student has since been arrested and is now booked into the Sacramento County Youth Detention Facility. The student is facing charges of possession of a firearm by a minor and possession of a firearm on school grounds, among other charges.
