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.
