A student at a middle school in the Putnam City school district was arrested Friday on suspicion of bringing a weapon to school.

The incident happened at Capps Middle School, according to Putnam City spokesperson Sheradee Hurst.

She said the weapon was unloaded and was inside a student's bag, and district police confiscated both the weapon and some ammunition also found in the bag.

"Staff reacted quickly and appropriately," Hurst said.

This is a developing story.
