A Lee’s Summit North High School student brought a gun to school on Thursday, the district said in a release.
The gun was not loaded, nor did the student have ammunition.
“At this time it appears that the student did not have any intention to threaten or harm others,” the district wrote.
Two juveniles were taken into police custody following the incident, said Lee’s Summit police spokesman Chris Depue.
District officials were alerted to the presence of the weapon by an anonymous tip submitted via a “SafeSchools” website.
The district commended the individual who gave the tip, as well as the assistant principals and school resource officer who addressed it.
“The process worked in keeping our students safe,” the district said.
The student may be disciplined, the district added.
The incident comes about five months after another Lee’s Summit North student shot herself inside the school. Senior Gemesha Thomas later died as a result.
