LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- A Jefferson County Public Schools student is under arrest after police say he brought a loaded gun to Stuart Middle School.

The district confirms two students told their parents that a Stuart student on their bus had a weapon in his backpack.

When JCPS security and LMPD officers went to the student's home, they say they found the gun in his backpack.

An alert was sent to parents at Stuart Middle and Frost Middle because both schools share the bus the child was on.

In addition to the arrest, the student is also being disciplined according to JCPS policies.
