Student found with gun at Ontario Middle School

ONTARIO – Authorities found a student with a gun at Ontario Middle School Friday, alerted by a tip anonymously provided by another student, according to a statement Friday afternoon by officials of the Ontario School District.

The statement didn’t identify the student, grade level, or what type of weapon was found. A district official subsequently confirmed the student was a boy.

The district’s statement said that after getting the tip and “after an immediate investigation by OMS officials, a student was found in possession of a gun and placed in the custody” of the Ontario Police Department’s school resource officer for the middle school.

“Safety protocols were initiated and resulted in the removal of both the student and weapon from the building quickly and without disruption,” the statement said.

About 330 students attend the middle school . . .
