Gun found, confiscated from pupil at Augusta elementary school

A pupil brought a handgun to Windsor Spring Elementary School on Tuesday morning.

Kaden Jacobs, the director of communications for the Richmond County School System, said the 9 mm handgun was found and recovered from a pupil’s backpack after the pupil showed it to peers.

Students notified their teacher and the administration, along with the school resource officer, immediately responded to handle the situation and confiscate the gun, he said.

The pupil will face disciplinary actions, Jacobs said.
