Gun found at Smiths Station High School

SMITHS STATION, Ala. (AP) - Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones says a Smiths Station High School student faces disciplinary action after a gun was found at the school.

Jones says students contacted school resource officers Monday afternoon about the gun, which led the officers to talk to the student.

Jones says the student told officers about the weapon, and the unloaded 9 mm handgun was found on campus. He says the situation developed quickly and no one was in danger.

The sheriff says the student faces disciplinary action from the school. Jones says his office has not charged the student.
