No criminal charges were being considered, the news station said. Fox News has reached out to the police department. 

The school district declined to comment on any potential disciplinary action, citing privacy rights. 

“The safety and security of our children and staff are top priorities in our District and, it must always be our shared responsibility as a school community,” George Sells, district director of communications and marketing, told Fox News. 

An investigation into the incident is ongoing, and school administrators asked parents and guardians to make sure all firearms in their homes are secure and kept away from children.
