According to a release issued by the Greenup County Sheriff's Department, deputies assisted Greenup County High School officials in the apprehension of a 15-year old male juvenile student, who was carrying a loaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun on the school's campus during their homecoming game.

The release says the juvenile was also carrying an extra fully loaded magazine and a box of extra ammunition.
