ROCKCASTLE COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Letters went home to parents at Rockcastle County Middle School after school officials found an unloaded gun on a student on Thursday.
According to the Rockcastle County Superintendent's Office, the student with the gun was never around other students. School officials say this all had happened before classes started and they were able to "isolate" the student.
School officials turned over the student to the authorities.
The superintendent told WKYT over the phone that, "We are very grateful that the other student came to us with that tip."
