HAMILTON, Ohio — School officials found a gun in a student's locker at Wilson Middle School Monday.

Hamilton police have taken the student and the weapon into custody, Principal Jon Szary wrote in a letter to parents. He wrote the investigation is ongoing, but "it is clear at this point no individual was in danger."

Another student informed a staff member there was a possibility that another student brought a gun to school, Szary wrote. Officials and a school resource officer immediately investigated the incident and found the gun, he added.

"We commend the student who notified the Wilson staff about the possible threat and encourage you to continue to stress the importance of students reporting anything they perceive as a threat," Szary wrote.
