Gun Found In The Bathroom Of A Steele Creek Elementary School

CHARLOTTE, NC — CMS police say they have identified the child they think brought a gun to an elementary school Wednesday morning.

The gun was found in the bathroom of Palisades Park Elementary in Steele Creek. Police say they do not think the child was trying to hurt anyone, and the gun was found before school started.

The principal of the school is asking parents to check their children’s backpacks everyday to make sure they don’t bring anything inappropriate to the campus.
