LEE COUNTY, Fla. - A Lee County student is arrested for bringing a gun on campus.

It happened Friday at Cypress Lake High School.  The 15 year old was found with a 22 caliber handgun and two bullets.

Deputies say the teen was having problems with a young man in his neighborhood and feared for his safety.  The teen told the School Resource Officer he got the gun before school and needed it because of the neighborhood issues.
