BUENA VISTA, Ga — The Marion County assistant superintendent confirms a high school student brought what looks like a gun on the school bus Tuesday afternoon.
Glenn Tidwell says the boy was on the bus headed home from Marion County Middle/High School when another student took a picture of the gun in his backpack. Tidwell says from the photo, investigators can’t tell if the gun was real or fake.
He says the Marion County Sheriff’s office continues to investigate, but couldn’t find the gun in the student’s home.
Tidwell says school policy could have the boy expelled if the gun was real. If the gun was fake, discipline could vary based on the case.This is a developing story. Stay with News 3 for updates.
