GREELEY — A teen suspected of smoking marijuana near school was arrested after administrators found an unloaded gun and ammunition in his backpack.

The 17-year-old was one of four students reportedly smoking near Greeley Central High School Wednesday morning. Administrators asked them to come inside the school where officials searched their backpacks. They found an unloaded .38 caliber handgun and ammunition in the 17-year-old's bag.

It's illegal to bring a gun to school but school district spokeswoman Theresa Myers says there's no evidence the teen intended to use the gun to harm anyone there. She says he had no previous disciplinary problems.
