VANCOUVER, Wash. — A student at Skyview High School was arrested on Tuesday for bringing a loaded handgun to class.

The semi-automatic handgun was found by staff in the boy’s jacket pocket.  It had rounds in the magazine and an empty chamber.

The student said he brought it for self-defense.  He’s charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a dangerous weapon on school grounds.

This was the second arrest of an armed student in Southwest Washington following last week’s mass school shooting in Texas.
