A tenth-grade student is in custody after a gun was found at West Port High School in Ocala, officials said.
Authorities said a student told a School Resource Officer the tenth grader had a gun. The SRO removed the boy from class and discovered a pistol and a loaded magazine.
The Ocala Police Department said the magazine was not loaded into the gun.
The student was arrested and faces charges including possession of a firearm on school grounds.
Authorities said they investigated a rumor that another student had a gun in his vehicle, but did not find evidence to support the claim.
