A student in Virginia's Fairfax County is being investigated after bringing a gun to school. Administrators at Robinson Secondary School confiscated a gun from a student's locker Wednesday.
According to a letter sent to parents, Fairfax Police were notified immediately, and criminal and administrative investigations are underway. Police believe the student was a 13-year-old girl. Other suspects involved have been identified and questioned. Police say the matter is currently being dealt with administratively, and at this point, no criminal charges have been filed.
In the letter, the principal wrote: "We recognize the danger associated with any weapon in the school. Any violations that jeopardize the safety of students at Robinson will result in severe consequences as outlined in the Student Rights & Responsibilities document."
Fairfax County Schools won't comment on any disciplinary action taken; however, the handbook calls for a mandatory 10-day suspension with a recommendation for expulsion for no less than a year.
The school serves students grades 7 through 12 and is located on Sideburn road.
