School district: Colleton County Middle School student brought gun to school

COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities are investigating after a Lowcountry middle school student reportedly brought a gun to school. 

Officials with the Colleton County School District say a student at Colleton County Middle School had a gun in their possession. 

The discovery was made by a school employee who was addressing a "discipline matter" with the student. 

District officials say when the weapon was discovered, administration evaluated the incident, ensured that all students and staff were safe, and informed law enforcement officials.

The Colleton County Sheriff's Office is investigating. 

"Please be assured that everyone’s safety is paramount," CCSD officials said."We are continuing to take appropriate measures to maintain a safe and secure environment at all of our campuses. Colleton County School District policy, as well as state law, considers the possession of a firearm on school premises by a student to be an extremely serious disciplinary infraction, as well as a criminal matter, and is being treated as such."
