RED BLUFF, Calif. -

A 16-year-old in Red Bluff was arrested for bringing a gun near Red Bluff High School.   The teen had previously been expelled from the school.

His probation officer went looking for him for a probation violation Monday afternoon.

He was found on First Street near Park Avenue, that's not far from Red Bluff High School.

Police say he had a handgun in his waistband.  He was arrested for carrying a concealed firearm and possession of a firearm within 1000 feet of a public school.

The same teen had entered a dance Friday night at the school.  The teen ignored a teacher's instructions to leave the campus before being escorted from the dance.
