A Middleton High School student is under arrest for bringing a loaded gun to school, police said.
The school resource officer received a tip about the gun, and took the 16-year-old student to a secure area.
That's when the officer found the loaded gun inside the student's jacket pocket, according to a media release from the Tampa Police Department.
The student was arrested and taken to the county Juvenile Assessment Center.
Police did not say if the student told them why he brought the gun.
There's no word yet on charges.
