Little Rock student caught with gun on campus

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An 18-year-old Little Rock high school student has been arrested after being found with a loaded gun on the school campus.

Police say DeQuon Moppins was arrested Monday at Hall High School on charges of carrying a gun onto school grounds and resisting arrest.

No injuries were reported.

Police say a custodian called officers after seeing Moppins show off a .22 caliber weapon to another student behind the football field house.

Lt. Terry Hastings says Moppins told police he brought the gun for protection.
