HUFFMAN, Texas - A student at Hargrave High School was arrested Monday after administrators were told he had a gun, officials said.

 Officials at the Huffman Independent School District said in a Facebook post that they received a tip that the student had a gun in his backpack and wanted to hurt himself.

“The student and backpack were immediately taken into custody, and the building has been placed on lockdown as a precaution as we continue to investigate the incident,” officials said in the post.

Officials said the child did have a gun, but they would not say whether it was loaded..

This was another in a series of threats at Houston-area schools after Friday's massacre at Santa Fe High School that killed 10 people.
