A gun was found at Roseville Area High School Tuesday and a student was detained, according to the principal.
The case comes a month after two students at the same school were found with guns in separate incidents.
In Tuesday’s case, school staff received a report about 1 p.m. that a gun was on campus, Principal Jen Wilson wrote in a letter to families. As a precaution, students and staff were told to stay in their classrooms.
The school worked with Roseville police to conduct a search and the gun was found, Wilson wrote.
“From a school perspective, our next step for the student involved will be to follow our disciplinary action, which has a number of potential results up to and including expulsion,” Wilson said.
On Sept. 25, a handgun was found in a 17-year-old student’s backpack at Roseville Area High School. That afternoon, in an unrelated case, a 16-year-old student was discovered with a gun. Prosecutors charged both of them.
