A Grove City High School student is now in custody for bringing a loaded gun to school.
Administrators at South-Western City School District were tipped off by another student, who claimed a student had brought a gun to school in a backpack, reports This Week News.
“The principal told the school-resource officer, who is a member of the Grove City Police Department, about the report and the gun was recovered without incident,” Sandy Nekoloff, executive director of communications with the South-Western City School District said, per This Week News. “The gun was loaded when it was found.”
