GOBLES, Mich. — A Gobles High School student was arrested for bringing a firearm to school, according to the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office.

We’re told the student did not have the firearm on his person when deputies made contact but the student had admitted to bringing it to school before for self-defense.

The sheriff’s office says the handgun was discovered at the student’s residence and confiscated as evidence, adding the student was taken into custody Friday at the Van Buren County Jail to await arraignment.
