UPDATE 3:20 P.M.:
A 16-year-old East Gadsden High School student was arrested this morning and charged with possession of a firearm on a school campus and possession of a concealed weapon. The weapon was found in the student's backpack, but he had not taken it out.
Forty-five students were sent home as a precaution.
The student brought the weapon to school on the heels of a rumored possible fight that involved the student's cousin. By noon, all the students were back in class, but many parents did come and take their children home.
