Police find gun at Central Valley High in Ceres

CERES — Police officers apprehended a Central Valley High School student who brought a gun to the campus this morning, a Ceres Unified School District official said.

District spokesman Jay Simmonds said the student did not have ammunition and the gun was inoperable.

“We think it’s just a kid who’s not thinking straight,” Simmonds said.

Police locked down the campus about 11 a.m. when they discovered the gun. The campus reopened at 12:20 p.m.

“Everybody’s safe,” Simmonds said.

Simmonds did not have details about what led police to the student. He said no other students were searched for weapons.

The student could be expelled, Simmonds said.
