Loaded gun found at Lexington high school
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Fayette County Public Schools officials say a loaded gun was found at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School on Wednesday morning.
District leaders say the gun was in a backpack.
They found it as a student walked through the metal detectors.
FCPS police arrested that student.
In a letter to parents, Dunbar’s principal said the student is charged with unlawful possession of a weapon on school property.
The student could also face additional charges.
This is the second time this year that a loaded gun was discovered at Dunbar after a similar incident unfolded in February. That situation was also quickly handled by security and led to a student’s arrest.
