MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee police say a Hamilton High School student was arrested on Wednesday, December 3rd following a report of a student with a gun.

Police were called out to the school around 3:30 p.m. after a staff member called police reporting a student may have a gun.

No weapon was found.

Police say school officials had been having trouble with the student who was later arrested all day.

A Milwaukee Public Schools spokesman tells FOX6 News the end of the school day was slightly altered as only limited movement was allowed in the hallways. School was dismissed less than five minutes later than normal on Wednesday.

    There was no gun and no staff or safety here at Hamilton high school didn’t report that he had a gun and yes I am student but I am also a undercover safety and he never had a gun I knew the person who got arrested for a year and a half and he would have never brought a gun but I might be wrong but did the police check every room, every locker, every desk, every mailboxes, and even in all the bushes more precise the bushes by the flag

    And even the Principal Dr. Mateo stated and said that the student didn’t have a gun and if he did then doesn’t anybody think that the police should have got all the students to a safe area if he did have a gun cause I know a lot about guns and most of the doors here are wooden with plastic and a window you can easily punch of the plastic and a bullet for a gun can go through a door so I think if anything like this does ever happen again the should first locate where the person with the gun is and try to get everyone out of the school safely then go after the person with the gun.
