BOUNTIFUL, Utah — A juvenile was arrested Wednesday after allegedly firing a weapon that caused Bountiful High School to go into lockout protocols.

The incident stemmed from a dispute between the suspect and another juvenile next to the school on Tuesday afternoon. After showing a weapon and firing it, the male suspect fled the scene in a vehicle.

Because of the weapon being fired nearby, the school was placed in lockout as police investigated the incident. The lockout was lifted a short time later and there was no danger to students or faculty.

On Wednesday, Bountiful police arrested the suspect and booked him on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm, possession of a dangerous weapon and discharge of a firearm
