OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Authorities say a loaded gun has been found in a backpack on the campus of Putnam City High School in Oklahoma City and a student was arrested.

School officials say there are no injuries.

School spokesman Steve Lindley told reporters that several parents called campus police Thursday to report the student was carrying a gun. Campus police found the student near the school football stadium and the backpack believed to belong to the student was found in bushes near the stadium.

Police say the student managed to escape campus police, but was arrested a short time later in nearby Warr Acres.

The student’s name and age and a possible motive for carrying the weapon were not immediately released.
