Lawrence police notified Lawrence High School administrators on Friday that officers during the lunch hour found an unloaded gun in a senior male student’s vehicle.
Police were investigating an off-campus incident, but the student’s vehicle was previously parked on school property, said Julie Boyle, a school district spokeswoman. There were no threats and no incident with the firearm, Boyle said.
Lawrence High administrators initiated disciplinary action against the student, and the school also notified parents, students and staff members, Boyle said.
Last month, while investigating a traffic accident at Free State High School, Lawrence police found a firearm in a sophomore male student’s vehicle on school property. There was no incident with the firearm either, but the student was also disciplined.
