Student with gun arrested at Craven Community College

NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) —  Craven Community College went on lockdown Monday morning after a student was seen with a gun.

The Craven County Sheriff’s Office and New Bern police responded around 10:10 a.m. and removed the student from a classroom.

After searching the student, they found the weapon, which they said he had hidden to avoid detection.

He is enrolled in the GED program at the school, deputies said.

He was placed in the Craven County Jail on a $25,000.00 dollar bond and has a first appearance in Craven County District Court on Tuesday.

The lockdown at the school is no longer in effect, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
