Morgan County R-II responds to gun report on school bus
MORGAN COUNTY - The Morgan County R-II School District sent a letter home to parents Monday that said officials searched a school bus Friday after a possible gun was spotted.
The letter said a student told the bus driver he thought he saw a gun in a duffel bag on the bus.
The bus driver pulled over and notified the school district. The driver then investigated and found what looked like a gun outside of the bus.
The letter said law enforcement and school officials arrived and found an air soft gun and knife outside of the bus.
The bus driver kept all the students on the bus while officials were investigating.
Superintendent Joyce Ryerson said in the letter the students involved didn't threaten or show the weapons while on the bus.
