FARGO — A Lincoln Elementary School student brought a loaded handgun to school Monday, Nov. 29, and was suspended pending the results of an investigation to determine if any further actions are needed.

School administration was notified after the student shared with classmates that the handgun was brought to class. Fellow students reported the information to a teacher, who found, confiscated and secured the gun, according to AnnMarie Campbell, a Fargo Public Schools spokeswoman.

Lincoln Elementary went into a brief lockdown while the gun was being secured, and no threats were made to students or staff during the incident, according to Campbell. The weapon was taken from the school by the Fargo Police Department.

The student in question accompanied staff to the school office where the student's parents were contacted.

Administration is working with the Fargo Police Department regarding the incident, and because the investigation is ongoing, no further information was provided.
