LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A 16-year-old student at Del Sol Academy of the Performing Arts was arrested for having a 9mm handgun on school property, according to school police.

The arrest happened around 11 a.m. on April 25. The student was booked into Juvenile Detention Center.

Several other students were arrested this week after officers investigated social media threats to shoot people, and a 15-year-old was arrested with a loaded stolen handgun at a high school campus.

Clark County School police Sgt. Bryan Zink said Thursday that tips received through Nevada SafeVoice led to the arrest of a 13-year-old Silvestri Junior High student at her home on Wednesday and the arrest of a 16-year-old Valley High School student at his home on Monday.

Both students face felony terrorist threat charges.

Also on Wednesday, Zink says 15-year-old male student was arrested on campus at Chaparral High School with a loaded 9mm handgun in his backpack.
