FORT WORTH, Texas—A stu­dent brought a gun and bul­lets to a Fort Worth mid­dle school on Wed­nes­day, po­lice say.

Fort Worth po­lice said a hand­gun was found in­side a locker at Tim­berview Mid­dle School af­ter a stu­dent was caught pass­ing out am­mu­ni­tion at school.

On Wed­nes­day, the school’s as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal told a school re­source of­fi­cer she saw a stu­dent pass­ing out bul­lets to other stu­dents. The stu­dent had al­ready been taken to the front of­fice where he was wait­ing with his grand­mother, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

School staff searched the stu­dent’s locker but did not find a gun, po­lice said.

A school se­cu­rity of­fi­cer said mul­ti­ple stu­dents told him they had ac­tu­ally seen the gun. The stu­dent ad­mit­ted he had brought the gun to school and it was in an empty locker, po­lice said.

The stu­dent showed the of­fi­cer the locker and, in­side, the school se­cu­rity guard found a black duf­fel bag with a hand­gun.

The stu­dent was charged with un­law­fully car­ry­ing a weapon in a pro­hib­ited place.

Tim­berview Mid­dle School is lo­cated in Fort Worth but is part of the Keller school dis­trict.
