BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) — In a letter sent to parents at Davila Middle School, principal Sara Rueda said a student was arrested Friday for bringing a gun to school.

Administrators found the student and took away the weapon. Rueda says the student was cooperative.

Rueda says the incident is being handled by Bryan Police.

The student faces charges of unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a stolen firearm.

Bryan ISD released the following statement:

“On Friday, September 16, 2022, a student was arrested for bringing a gun to Davila Middle School. The school was told by his family that the student may have the gun and said there were no plans to use it at school. Campus administration immediately located the student, who cooperated fully, and the weapon was confiscated.

The gun was never removed from the backpack, the student declared no intention to use it, and the family and student cooperated fully with the district and the police. The district does not believe the student intended to harm anyone. The case is being handled by Bryan Police. This is an important reminder for parents and guardians to keep all weapons safe and out of reach of children.
