Posted December 16, 2011
Louisburg, N.C. — Police seized an unloaded handgun found Friday morning in the car of a student at Louisburg High School, officials said.
Other students reported the gun to school officials, and police searched the car while the unidentified student was detained, officials said. No ammunition for the .22-caliber revolver was found, they said.
The student was "off campus and not on school grounds" after the incident, officials said. No information on possible criminal charges or school discipline was provided.
"At this time, there is no evidence that the student was attempting to cause harm to anyone, was not acting in concert with others, was not acting due to some provocation and did not have a plan to use the handgun," Franklin County Schools spokesman Joseph Baisley said in a statement.
