SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A Southwood High School student has been arrested after allegedly bringing a BB gun to school.

Officers were called to the school Monday morning just before Noon after a student who had been reported as a runaway showed up for class. When they arrived, they made contact with 17-year-old Shamichael White.

Police say it was determined that White had indeed been listed as a runaway, but had decided to report for school that day. Perplexed by White's actions, officers began looking into the sequence of events leading up to White's presence at school. As part of their inquiry, officers inspected a backpack in White's possession. That's where police say they found a BB-gun that looked like a realistic handgun.

Following interviews with detectives, White was arrested and charged with illegal carrying of weapons and booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
