HCCSC: Student brought toy gun to school

Staff report

When a Lincoln Elementary School student showed off his toy gun to a friend on the bus yesterday, the friend immediately alerted authorities about the fake weapon, according to Huntington County Community School (HCCSC) reports. 

HCCSC officials said the toy gun looked real, so the student immediately informed the bus driver. From there, the toy gun was confistacted and the bus driver alerted law enforcement, according to the press release. 

HCCSC said no body was in danger during the incident, but officials say law enforcement conducted an investigation into the matter. The district commended the student who reported the incident, along with the bus driver and law enforcement, for following safety protocols because they said it ensures that nothing slips through the cracks. 

“We encourage our students to always report safety concerns,” the press release stated. “By staying vigilant as a community, we maintain a safe school environment for everyone.”
