DUBUQUE, Iowa (KCRG) - Jefferson Middle School officials found a BB pistol in a student's locker on Tuesday, Principal Kelly Molony said in a letter to parents.

Molony said that the gun was not displayed in a threatening manner, and that officials confiscated the gun upon learning about it. She reminded parents in her letter that school personnel and local law enforcement are trained to treat anything resembling a gun as real, and the presence of a BB gun is not taken lightly.

An investigation into the incident is being conducted, and any disciplinary action needed will follow school guidelines.
