WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police are investigating a report that a student had a handgun at a school bus stop earlier this week.
Police spokesman Officer Charley Davidson said Friday that police received a call Wednesday that a girl reported seeing a 12-year-old boy and 14-year-old boy playing with a handgun at a school bus stop, and that the 14-year-old also fired a shot into the ground. Davidson says it appears the shot was fired accidentally.
The Wichita Eagle reports (http://j.mp/2g1cYwI) that police are investigating whether the gun was taken onto the bus or into Truesdell Middle School.
Susan Arensman, spokeswoman for the Wichita school district, also says the student showed the gun to other students on the bus ride home. Principal Terrell Davis says the students involved will face disciplinary action.
