A search of the student’s backpack was conducted on school grounds, and that’s when the handgun was found, police said.

The student was detained on a second-degree felony weapons charge.

“This incident is an isolated event that poses no further threat to the community or our students,” Schertz Police Chief Jim Lowery said. “There were no threats of violence directed toward students or staff.”

Lowery urges parents to speak to their children about gun safety and about reporting threatening social media posts or those that could be perceived as a threat.
