CEDAR PARK, Texas (KXAN) — A student was arrested at Cedar Park High School Monday for bringing knives and a cap gun on campus.

School officials learned the student may be in possession of a weapon Monday morning from a parent.

Leander ISD officials notified police and campus administrators immediately tracked down the student, the district said. An investigation confirmed the student brought several knives and the cap gun to school.

The district reminded parents that these incidents are not tolerated and the student faces disciplinary action.

Earlier Monday, Gus Garcia Young Men’s Leadership Academy in Austin was placed on lockdown for a short period of time after someone reported seeing a weapon on campus. No weapon was found and the lockdown was lifted around 11:30 a.m.
