Assistant Superintendent David Ryan said the student will receive disciplinary action from the school which could result in expulsion.

The student will also be charged with being in possession of a gun along with being in possession of drugs and paraphernalia, Lt. Nicole Ledoux of the Manchester Police Department said.

Parents were notified of the gun and drugs in the school, but students never got a notification about the incident. Ryan says this is because the incident was handled quickly, so the staff and students were not at risk of being in danger.

A student who was not aware of the situation, Josh Moser, said "if it had been a real problem, we would have been notified."

The gender and grade of the student was not released because the student is a juvenile.
