The police arrested an 18-year-old boy at a school on Van Doornenplantsoen in Zoetermeer on Thursday afternoon. The pupil had a gun with him, RTL Nieuws reports.
Officers responded to the school based on a report that a pupil was armed. This turned out to be true. The suspect was arrested without problems. Why he'd taken a gun to school is not clear.
The arrest was made in the afternoon, but the police only announced it on Thursday evening.
