D'Iberville Teen Arrested for Having Gun on School Property

A 13 year old girl is out on bond after being arrested and charged with "possession of a firearm on school property" Monday. The girl is a student at D'Iberville Middle School.

Harrison County Deputies say the student was arrested as she got off the bus Monday after a search revealed a 9 millimeter handgun in her purse. Deputies say, right now, there is no evidence suggesting she was planning to use the gun.

Harrison County Schools Superintendent Henry Arledge says a parent called in a tip that the student had the gun. Arledge says the student is suspended, pending a hearing which is set for next week.
