Indian River Central School officials notified parents at about 2 p.m. that a student took a rifle to school today, but a faculty member “immediately secured” the gun and police were called.

In an email to district residents, James Koch said the rifle was in a case, which was opened in a high school classroom. The teacher in the class immediately confiscated the gun. Both the rifle and the student are now in police custody.

Mr. Koch wrote that “no students or staff were threatened or injured in the incident and the police continue to investigate this incident.

Calls to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, which investigated the incident, yielded no further information at 3:15 p.m.
