A student was arrested for bringing a gun to Nolan Ryan Junior High in Pearland on Thursday.

According to Alvin ISD, at about noon Thursday, a campus police officer caught a 13-year-old student with a small caliber semi-automatic handgun in a hallway on campus. The student was arrested without incident. There were no known threats or incidents related to the handgun.

School police say the student reportedly showed the weapon to other students on campus. The AISD Police Department has consulted with the Brazoria County District Attorney's Office and say additional charges may be forthcoming.

Principal Christina Lovette sent a message to parents notifying them of the events that took place. It read, in part, "There were no direct threats made against anyone. Still, this is a serious violation of law and the Alvin ISD Code of Conduct. The student has been removed from campus, and appropriate legal and disciplinary action will be taken."

The investigation is ongoing.
