Police arrested a Trenton Central High School student after the suspect brought a loaded gun to school today. 

                                                                According to Trenton Police, at approximately 1:00 p.m., police were advised of an adult student who was in possession of a firearm while attending school at 400 Chambers Street, Trenton Central High School.  

Police said upon further investigation, the male was identified as Mr. Breion Crayton, 19.  

School officials immediately instituted a shelter-in-place to isolate and locate Crayton.
