LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A student at Fairdale High School was arrested Wednesday after a loaded gun was found in their backpack, according to a Jefferson County Public Schools spokesperson.

Ben Jackey tells WDRB News that someone tipped off authorities at the school about the firearm. When school officials searched the student's backpack, they found the weapon, which was loaded, according to Jackey.

No threats were made, and the student was taken into custody without incident, Jackey said.

A letter has been sent home to parents.

Jackey said the student is a juvenile. In Kentucky, all juvenile records are sealed. As a result, WDRB News does not have the suspect's identity.
