EVANS, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - A student at Greenbrier High School was arrested Thursday for a gun found in their backpack.

The incident report states a teacher requested administration to their classroom. The assistant principal informed the officers they were needed for a weapon on campus.

In the male student’s backpack, they found a loaded Black Glock 48 handgun in the bottom of the backpack, according to the report.

According to Steve Morris with the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, the student was a 14-year-old.

According to officials, the student became “combative” and was placed in handcuffs. After they determined his demeanor was no longer violent, they removed the handcuffs.

The student was charged with carrying a weapon within a school safety zone and was committed to the Augusta Regional Youth Detention Center.

After interviewing the father, they learned the gun was brought from his residence without the knowledge of his father. The magistrate’s office was consulted and advised no warrant would be issued for the father.
