— Cumberland County sheriff’s detectives charged a 15-year-old Jack Britt High School student with bringing a gun to the school’s campus Tuesday morning.

The student, whose name was not released, was charged with felony possession of a weapon on school property and was being held in a juvenile detention center. 

The gun was discovered after school staff received a tip that the student had a weapon. The teen was removed from class and searched.

No one was injured, and there was no prior notice that the student planned to bring the weapon to campus, sheriff's officials said.
