District: Student brings gun to South Haven school

Southwest Michigan

SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — Officials say a student brought a gun to Baseline Middle School in South Haven.

On Wednesday, kids told the school’s assistant principal the student had the gun. The principal and assistant principal quickly isolated the student and secured the weapon, according to a statement from South Haven Public Schools.

The South Haven Police Department is investigating the incident, the district said.

“While an incident of this nature is one we hope to never be faced with, we are thankful that our students did the right thing by reporting the information to a trusted adult,” the district’s statement reads.  

South Haven Superintendent Kevin Schooley says the student has been suspended.

Officials will follow the school board’s procedures. The student could be expelled, Schooley said.
