Gun brought to Hancock school



A male student who came to Hancock Middle-Senior High School Wednesday morning with an unloaded pellet gun has been removed from the school pending a meeting with authorities.

The unidentified student came to the attention of Principal Robert "Bo" Myers and staff when another student saw the weapon and reported it, according to Donna Messina, community relations specialist.

"There was no ammunition in the weapon," Messina said. The incident has been characterized as a "show and tell" situation, Messina said.

A letter went out to all parents Wednesday afternoon, alerting them to the incident and to the response that the school had to the incident.

Myers assured parents that all efforts are made to ensure that students are in a safe environment when they are at school and that weapons won't be tolerated, Messina said.

Details on criminal charges against the boy were unavailable Thursday morning.
