Facing Charges After Bringing a Replica Weapon Onto School Campus
Earlier today, Acadiana High School’s administration received a report that a student had a gun on campus. In accordance with district and school emergency response protocols, the school was immediately placed on lockdown and law enforcement and school administration began an investigation.
A student of interest was quickly identified and the student was found to be in possession of what appeared to be a revolver. Upon further inspection it was determined that the revolver was a replica weapon. The student was arrested and charged with carrying a firearm on a school campus and possession of tobacco vapor products by someone under the age of 21. The student also faces disciplinary consequences from school.
Due to the ongoing investigation and the person involved is a minor, no further information will be released at this time. The district commends those who made the report and encourages its community to remain vigilant and proactive. LPSS would like to thank the Scott Police Department, the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office, and school and district staff, for their quick response and commitment to school safety.
