KLAMATH FALL, Ore. — One Mazama High School student was arrested and another student cited Thursday morning after an officer found them in possession of a firearm and marijuana, according to a joint statement from the Klamath County School District (KCSD) and Klamath County Sheriff's Office (KCSO).

According to the statement, a Mazama School Resource Officer went to the school parking lot after reports of two students smoking marijuana out by the cars. The officer apparently searched a vehicle associated with one of the students, identified as 18-year-old Juan Zambrano-Lopez, and found 'drugs and a firearm' in the vehicle.

KCSO deputies then arrested Zambrano-Lopez for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm on school grounds, and cited the other student for Minor in Possession of Tobacco and Marijuana.

“According to the investigation so far, there appears to be no sign of any intent to use the weapon on school property,” said Sheriff Chris Kaber.

KCSD has said that the district responded 'quickly and with appropriate disciplinary action' after hearing about the weapon, although their statement did not detail those measures.

“This situation is not OK,” said Superintendent Greg Thede. “Safety is our number one concern.”

According to KCSD, the district, Mazama High and KCSO deputies are continuing to investigate and work out an appropriate response for the students involved. KCSO will have an increased presence at Mazama High for the remainder of the week.
