A loaded gun was found on a local college campus Saturday afternoon.

Lon Morris officials say they found the weapon during a routine, random room search.

The student, Evan Gilliland, 21, tried to keep campus security out of his room, but they forced the door open and found a loaded AK-47 assault rifle.

The school contacted Jacksonville Police, who confiscated the weapon.

Gilliland was immediately expelled and arrested for possession of a firearm in a prohibited area.

Also found in the students room: Two magazines for the rifle, and some marijuana.
