JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 15-year-old girl is under arrest after a loaded gun was found on the campus of a Jacksonville high school.

A Duval County School Board police report says a school security officer was alerted Wednesday after a photo of a student holding the gun in a girl's restroom appeared on social media.

Police told The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/1YLqti7 ) that the student in the photo was identified and questioned. The gun was found inside a bag in her locker at Robert E. Lee High School.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says the Ruger pistol was reported stolen on Nov. 24.

The girl is being charged with possession of a firearm on school property.
