A Virginia student is under investigation after bringing a gun to school Wednesday.

Administrators at Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax County, Va., confiscated a gun from a 13-year-old female student's locker, according to Fairfax County Police. Authorities have identified and questioned other suspects involved in the case.

Police say the matter is being dealt with administratively. No criminal charges have been filed.

A letter sent home to parents indicated police were notified about the gun immediately and that criminal and administrative investigations are underway.

In the letter, Principal Dan Meier 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 disciplinary actions. The school handbook calls for a mandatory 10 day suspension and recommends expulsion for no less than one year.

Robinson Secondary School serves students grades 7 through 12.
