A Freeman High School student was suspended after law enforcement found a shotgun in his vehicle last week.
Freeman administrators requested a deputy to the high school on Thursday morning regarding a student who had brought a shotgun to school.
The student left the shotgun in his vehicle, which was parked in the school parking lot.
According to a press release, the deputy responding to the scene met the principal in the parking lot and secured the 12 gauge pump action shotgun, along with several shotgun shells, from the student’s vehicle.
Following an investigation, the student was detained by law enforcement and suspended by the school. The student, a juvenile male, has a pending court date.
Deputies do not believe the student brought the gun to school with intent to use it against any student, staff or faculty. The student told deputies he had been out hunting and simply forgot the shotgun was in his passenger seat.
