Bailey, N.C. — A Bailey Elementary School student has been suspended after authorities found a .22-caliber handgun at the school Monday, officials said Tuesday.
Another Bailey Elementary student tipped off a teacher about the gun. Administrators searched a girl's backpack and found the unloaded gun.
Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools officials said there was no evidence that the girl made any threats to others at school.
Classes weren't disrupted by the incident, and school officials notified parents about it through automated phone messages.
