COLVILLE, Wash. — A male student was arrested with a stolen gun at Colville Junior High School on Friday. 

A father of a child at Colville Jr. High called KREM to report that a student brought a gun to school and the gun was found in the student's locker.  

A spokesperson from the school said staff found the gun because another student raised concerns about it. 

Colville police arrested the student at the school at 12:25 p.m. Parents were informed via automated message about the incident about two hours later. 

The student was charged with theft of firearm, having a dangerous weapon on school grounds, and possession of a firearm by a juvenile. 

He is now in juvenile detention in Stevens County.
