Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones says Monday morning, February 13, school resource officers obtained information a student was armed at the school. The student was contacted by deputies, and Sheriff Jones says a firearm was recovered from the student without further incident. 

Sheriff Jones says the case remains under investigation.
