A Chicago Public Schools student was arrested after allegedly trying to bring a gun to a South Side school. A CPS spokesperson said the gun was spotted by a security guard on the Bowen Campus of the New Millennium High School when the student's book bag went through an x-ray machine.

The teenager then left the school, but was caught by police a short time later.

The student faces criminal charges and could be expelled from school.
