Student with BB gun arrested at southwest Las Vegas high school

Updated August 11, 2022 - 5:05 pm

A student was arrested Thursday at Sierra Vista High School after bringing a BB gun to campus.

Principal Jessica Lovell sent a message to parents saying Clark County School District police made the arrest after a report of a student in possession of a weapon, according to the district.

“Please take this opportunity to discuss school safety with your child,” Lovell said in the message. “If they ever face a situation where they are unsure whether or not to share information with an adult, please remind them to never hesitate reporting anything that may be a safety issue.”

Students and parents can make reports through SafeVoice by calling 833-216-7233 or online at safevoicenv.org.

School district police could not be reached for comment.
