VANCOUVER Wash. (KPTV) – A Vancouver teen is in custody after bringing a gun to school, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday.

Deputies with CCSO said the handgun had rounds in the magazine and an empty chamber.

The juvenile was arrested on unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a dangerous weapon while on school grounds and referred to a Designated Criss Responder while at the Juvenile Detention Center.
