Valdosta-- A fifteen-year-old male student in the 9th grade at Lowndes High was arrested Wednesday after school administrators found a loaded 9-millimeter pistol in a school locker.

A student told staff that the boy had brought the gun onto the campus after the 9th grader had an altercation with another student. The other student in the altercation had supposedly made comments to the effect that he may "need to bring some protection" with him to school.

Authorities said that the boy obtained the pistol from his father, without the father's knowledge, and hid it in a locker.

The 9th grader, whose name cannot be revealed, was taken to the Youth Detention Center in Thomasville, where he will remain incarcerated until he goes before a judge. That date is not yet known.

Under Georgia law, he will be expelled for one year, in addition to what ever other punishment he may face from the legal system.
