TUCSON, Ariz. -- Police say a Tucson high school student has been arrested for a hoax 911 call about a possible gunman on campus.
KVOA-TV reports that Tucson police arrested the 14-year-old Thursday on one count of false reporting of an emergency and one count of disorderly conduct.
Both are misdemeanor offenses.
Investigators say a caller told police around 9 a.m. Thursday that someone with three guns was at Santa Rita High School.
Police traced the call back to a cellphone belonging to a friend of the teenage suspect.
The incident comes a day after the school was on lockdown because of a reported sighting of guns in the area.
