GREENSBORO, N.C. — Police arrested a man Thursday on charges related to bringing a loaded gun onto the Southern Guilford High School campus, according to Guilford County Schools.

Police received a 911 call saying someone was coming onto the campus with a weapon in their vehicle. The school enacted its safety plan, which included locking down the building. This happened after buses left campus, so the majority of people impacted were staff and some student-athletes.

Deputies located a vehicle matching the 911 caller’s description. The driver was charged with possession of a weapon on campus and carrying a concealed weapon.

The man was not a student at SGHS, the school system said.

An investigation is ongoing.

The identity of the man charged has not been released.
