Handgun Found in Student's Backpack at Stewarts Creek High

A tip from a student led to the search of another student at Stewarts Creek High School. Law enforcement and school administration found a loaded handgun in the student's back pack Thursday morning.

Rutherford County Schools spokesman James Evans says the student was removed from class immediately, expelled under the zero tolerance policy and will now face multiple criminal charges.

Evans says since the high school shares campus space with Stewarts Creek Elementary and Middle Schools, parents of all three schools were sent a direct message about the incident.

He ensures parents that all students are safe and the school followed the safety procedures in place for such incidents.

This is the second incident of a gun being found on school grounds in as many weeks. Last Tuesday, the Rutherford County Sheriff's Department and Riverdale High School administration discovered a handgun and marijuana in a student's car after receiving a tip.
