FRISCO, Colo. — A firearm was found in a student locker at a Frisco middle school Friday after school officials received reports of a weapon on campus.

According to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, the firearm was located in a locker at Summit Middle School.

Both the weapon and the student involved were removed from class immediately, said deputies.

Reportedly, the weapon was to be used after school for target practice, said deputies.

However, because having a firearm on school premises is in violation of both the law and school policies, deputies took over the investigation.

“Our district and middle school team took this situation very seriously,” said school superintendent Heidi Pace. “I am proud of our school leaders and Sheriff’s office for the expedient response.”

Sheriff John Minor commended the Summit School District for its swift actions in response to the incident.

He added, “At this time, we believe no threats were made and we have no reason to believe that there was a security risk to other students at the school.”
