A group of Travelers Rest High School students who were walking to school this morning reported seeing a handgun laying in the grass.  The gun was near Main Street about 10 ft. onto TR High property.  The students told an administrator as soon as they arrived at school.

The administrator secured the area and contacted law enforcement. TRPD responded immediately.  At this time we have no information regarding the ownership of the gun or when or how the gun came to be on school property.

The safety of our students is our top priority.  Out of an abundance of caution the district and TRPD will have additional security personnel at school today and at the home football game tonight.

Further questions about the investigation should be directed to the TR Police Department.  Any video of the area must be obtained off of school property.
