Student arrested for bringing ghost gun to East Los Angeles Occupational Center campus

BOYLE HEIGHTS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A student, who was identified as a parolee, was arrested Wednesday morning for bringing a gun onto a school campus in the Boyle Heights area, authorities said.

LAUSD school police say they received a call from a student at the East Los Angeles Occupational Center about another student with a gun, prompting the campus on Marengo Street to be placed under lockdown.

The student was located and arrested shortly after and a 9mm ghost gun was recovered. Authorities said the suspect had previous violations involving weapons.

Nobody was injured and the lockdown was lifted.
