CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A student was arrested Monday after he was found with a 9mm pistol near Moody High School.

CCISD police chief Kirby Warnke said the teen took off running when approached by a staff member.

He led CCISD police on a foot chase, and CCPD was called in to help. He was caught and in police custody.

A release from Moody principal Enrique Vela states that while investigating the first student, another arrest was made after an additional student was found with a gun.

Vela said that all classroom doors were locked, in compliance with district policy.
