Today, Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 19, an anonymous student reported to school officials that a 16-year-old student was in possession of a gun. Yucaipa Police Department was notified and immediately located the student at an off campus location, at approximately 1:10 p.m.

According to YPD, the student in fact, was in possession of a 22-caliber handgun. He was subsequently arrested and transported to Juvenile Hall.

The investigation is ongoing as YPD continues to find out additional information. YPD will determine if the gun was ever on campus and if the student had any intention of carrying out a school shooting.

As the events were unfolding, staff at YHS took precautions and secured the campus and safety of the students.
