LITTLETON, Colo. (KDVR) – Students are in police custody after a handgun and ammunition were found in a locker at Euclid High School in Littleton on Monday.
According to Cindy Corlett, principal of Euclid High School, the gun was not loaded and Littleton Public Schools security and resource officers were notified and the weapon was secured.
The suspected students were quickly identified and placed in police custody while their parents were notified.
In an email sent to parents from the school, the Littleton Police Department advised the middle school to halt. Detention requires the student to remain in his or her classroom with continued learning and not move further around the school. According to the email, the detention lasted 90 minutes.
Littleton Police also conducted a search of the K9 area as an added precaution.
Students were not informed of the details of the investigation and will be provided with additional information and assistance by staff on Tuesday through the school’s student services.
According to Corlett, concern about the pistol was reported by a student.
“I would like to thank the Littleton Police Department, district school officials, and district security for their immediate and appropriate response,” Corlett said. “The safety and security protocols we adopted worked as they were designed to and led to a quick resolution. But, the fact remains, this is a very disturbing incident that will never happen. “
Charges against the student are pending.
