The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office was called out to Iowa High Shcool on Monday, November 5, at about 1 pm, in reference to a student "possibly" bringing a gun to school in his backpack, said a media release.

Deputies reportedly searched the backpack and discovered a loaded gun inside. The student, however, had not removed the gun from the backpack at any point while at school.

The student was booked in the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with illegal carrying of a weapon in a firearm free zone.
