A student at a high school in the North Texas town of Flower Mound is in custody for possessing a firearm on school property.

The student was found to be in possession of a handgun and removed from the school.

According to a release from the Flower Mound Police Department, officials were notified on February 15 that the 16-year-old student was carrying a firearm.

The student was immediately removed from class and searched. Officers discovered a small-caliber handgun. It was not loaded, but ammunition was also found.

The student has been removed from Marcus High School and remains in police custody facing felony charges for possessing a firearm in a prohibited place.

According to the release, it was fellow students of the suspect who reported it to school and police staff. Flower Mound Police Department worked with School Resource Officers who are on site at the school every day.

Edward S. Marcus High School is one of five main high schools in the Lewisville Independent School District. It services students who live in northern Flower Mound, Highland Village, Double Oak, Lewisville, and Copper Canyon.

The discovery comes one day after the latest school shooting which took place at a high school in Parkland, Florida. The attack left at least 14 people injured and 17 dead.

A student in Florida who survived the attack called on lawmakers to take action. "Some of our policymakers and some people need to — they need to look in the mirror and take some action because ideas are great but without action, ideas stay ideas and children die," said David Hogg, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
