ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – Normandy High School officials have boosted security after finding a loaded 22-caliber revolver in a student’s book bag this morning.

The district had already elevated patrols, following a student-involved shooting in Velda City Wednesday afternoon.

Officials says the 15-year-old freshman was questioned after being found in an area of campus restricted to students.  After a routine search revealed the weapon, he was taken into police custody. 

The school says the student’s parents also face a parental neglect complaint.  Today is the last day of classes for the year.
