Lawrence police discovered a firearm in a Free State High School sophomore male student’s vehicle on Thursday when officers were investigating an accident at the school.
No threats were made, and there was no incident with the firearm, said Julie Boyle, a school district spokeswoman. Police also found the suspect to be in possession of marijuana.
The school has initiated disciplinary action against the student and notified his parents. Free State administrators are also notifying parents, students and staff of the incident, Boyle said.
