Parents Notified After Central High Employee's Gun Reported Lost

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- Parents of students who attend Central High School were notified after a staff member told school officials on Wednesday that he had possibly lost his gun on campus. 

According to a Little Rock Police report, school resource officers were notified by school officials about a possible lost gun on campus. 

The police report goes on to say that the Head of LRCH Security told officers that a janitor told him that he had possibly lost his gun on campus while weed-eating. 

The gun was later found under in the janitor's car, according to the police report.

Police say the gun was unloaded and without a magazine. 

The report states the man was questioned, he was released without charges, and his gun was returned to him. 

We asked the Little Rock School District for a comment. A spokesperson sent us a statement from the principal that was sent to parents.

Good morning:
This is principal Nancy Rousseau.
Those of you who are new to Central will quickly learn that I am a communicator in all ways.
This morning we were notified by a non-certified staff member that he had inadvertently brought an unloaded hand gun to school that was in his car. We followed all our protocols notifying LRPD and LRSD Security who quickly confiscated the weapon. At no time were any children exposed to the situation. The staff member will be disciplined according to school district policy, procedures and the law. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me. For the record, we have had a wonderful first month of school. Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with the LRCH family..
