Stu­dent found with loaded hand­gun at school

The Standard (St. Catharines) - - WORLD NEWS -

MACON, Ga. — Some par­ents want stu­dents to use see-through back­packs and a Ge­or­gia school district is plead­ing with peo­ple to lock up their guns af­ter a stu­dent brought a loaded gun into his el­e­men­tary class­room.

The Tele­graph re­ports that the gun was found in a stu­dent’s jacket just be­fore school ended Wed­nes­day at Tay­lor El­e­men­tary School in Bibb County.

Af­ter a fourth-grade teacher over­heard stu­dents talk­ing about the weapon, the school’s cri­sis team found the loaded 9 mm weapon in a stu­dent’s jacket in an empty class­room. No one was hurt. A state­ment from the school district says two stu­dents had touched the gun, and three oth­ers knew about it but didn’t warn adults.

The district’s se­cu­rity di­rec­tor, David Gowan, said a crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing.
