Loaded Gun Found in Muncie School Locker

School officials in Muncie found a loaded gun inside a high school student's locker Wednesday.

A spokeswoman for Muncie Community Schools said the principal at Central High School was searching the student's locker because the student smelled like marijuana.

The loaded gun was inside the student's backpack in the locker. Police said the gun had bullets in the magazine, but there was not a bullet in the chamber.

The student, a 15-year-old male, was arrested.

Officials said student safety was not in jeopardy and the investigation was "routine."
