Weapon found at western Ky. school, 2 in custody


A western Kentucky school went on lockdown after a weapon was reported Thursday at a Cadiz High School.

According to Supt. Travis Hamby, there was a report to the high school administration of a weapon at Trigg County High School.

Hamby says the school implemented their emergency plan and locked down the building to ensure the safety of all students. The suspects were isolated from other students and a weapon was found.

Police have taken the 2 students involved into custody.

Hamby says during the lockdown, the students were secured in classrooms then a search was made.

The search included all lockers, hallways, restrooms, open common areas and outside grounds to ensure that no other weapons were on campus, Hamby said.
