A teenager was arrested after he was found with a gun.

According to a letter sent home to parents from Kingwood High School Principal Lisa Drabing, a Humble Independent School District officer arrested a 17-year-old student about 9:15 a.m. on Monday.

The arrested was not made on the school's campus, Drabing said.

According to the letter, the officer spotted the student in the area of North Park Drive near Forest Bluff Drive and asked him why he wasn't in school.
