Gun found at school in San Tan Valley, Arizona - second time in a week

For the second time in a week, a gun has been found at a school in San Tan Valley, Arizona.  The first had been an Airsoft pellet gun.  The second was a real one.

From the article:

According to Dana Hawman, Director of Public Relations, an older model black Monte Carlo drove through the school parking lot at 2:55 p.m. Wednesday.
Three baseball players reported hearing a student say he saw someone in the car holding a gun. They told a school administrator, who called 911.
Pinal County deputies stopped the car and arrested the person inside, who did indeed have a gun.
No shots were ever fired and no one was hurt.
"Our thanks go to our students who did the right thing by reporting the incident, and to the Sheriff's department for their quick action. Student safety is of utmost importance, and the actions today prove that it is a collaborative effort and priority for all," stated Hawman.
