Lewis Brey, director of human resources and internal counsel for the school district, said in a release the pellet guns were confiscated by police from the automobile of a high school student.
“Several students associated with this incident have already been identified and will be addressed by both the WPD and our school district in terms of a thorough investigation and possible consequences,” Mr. Brey said in the release.
The students who were identified were placed on out-of-school suspension “while the investigation continues, pending further action,” the release said.
Parents received notification from Superintendent of Schools Colleen Palmer just before 1 p.m. on Tuesday that the police were on campus investigating the discovery of a “pellet-type firearm” that was seen in a student car on campus. The superintendent said security was increased for the rest of the day, but “normal operations” would continue for the rest of the day.
All after school activities will be held Tuesday as scheduled.
