FEDERAL WAY, Wash. — A 16-year-old Federal Way High School student was arrested Monday for allegedly bringing what police said was a stolen handgun to campus.

The suspect was booked into King County Juvenile Detention, with a recommendation of a charge of dangerous weapon on school campus.

Cathy Schrock, with the Federal Way Police Department, said Federal Way High School went into lockdown at about 11:36 a.m. due to a report of a student having a gun on campus. The boy allegedly showed the gun to another student. Police could not find him and suspected he had left campus. As a precaution, Todd Beamer High School was also placed on lockdown, too, she said.

An officer later found the suspect at his home in Federal Way and a weapon was located that was determined to be a stolen handgun.
