A 17-year-old student at Whites Creek High School is facing charges after a gun was found inside a parked car on campus.

Metro Police say the principal alerted officers after a marijuana odor was found on another student who arrived at school in the same car as the 17-year-old.

Officers searched the car and found a .380 caliber pistol in the glove box.

The car had been reported stolen out of Clarksville.
