SCHERTZ, Texas – Schertz police are investigating after a third-grade student brought a loaded handgun and two knives to Rose Garden Elementary School in the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District.
Principal Sarah Reed reported the details to parents in a letter on Tuesday.
The gun was discovered at about 11:40 a.m. after a child reported to a teacher that another student showed him the gun.
“The teacher located the student and immediately took possession of the weapon, which was wrapped inside an article of clothing,” Reed said.
The Schertz Police Department is handling the investigation and is still determining if there was a threat intended toward students or staff, Reed told parents.
