HENDERSON, Ky. (AP) - Police say a western Kentucky student is facing charges after bringing a loaded gun to school.
Henderson Police spokeswoman Jennifer Richmond told The Gleaner that the 17-year-old Central Academy student faces a charge of unlawful possession of a weapon on school property. The student is being held at the Warren Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Bowling Green.
Richmond said a school resource officer went to remove two students from a classroom on "court-issued pickup orders" and found the weapon during a routine search. She said the gun contained two rounds of ammunition.
Richmond said it was unclear why the student brought the gun to school.
