ST. CHARLES, MI (WNEM) -

WNEM.com has learned a parent dropping off food as part of a food drive being held at St. Charles Elementary discovered a single .22 caliber shell or bullet on the school floor.

The office was immediately notified, police were called and the school was placed in "secure mode." That mode is not a complete lockdown as students can move in the halls, but are escorted.

Police, staff and district administration searched lockers, right down to boots and clothing in every locker.  All areas of the school were searched, according to Superintendent Mike Wallace.  Authorities wrapped up their search and gave the all clear at 11 a.m. The bullet was the only thing that was discovered.

Police and the superintendent speculate that it was in a box or bag or a pocket of a parent dropping off donated food.

The Superintendent says that all is back to normal, and the kids were outside for recess.

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
