Triopia superintendent Steve Eisenhauer says administrators found out about the alleged threat at about 10:30 yesterday morning. He says the student was brought into his office and the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department was called.
Deputies took the weapons from a vehicle in the parking lot.
Eisenhauer says there was no threat to the students and nobody was injured.
He says the district will carry out disciplinary action against the student following the results of an investigation. The student wasn’t arrested because a pellet gun is not considered a firearm.
Eisenhauer declined to comment further citing the ongoing investigation and student privacy laws.
