A Davenport Central High School student was found to have a pellet gun in school on Monday, but authorities said there was no threat to other students, and no one was injured.
“Nothing bad happened, but it should not have been in school,” said Dawn Saul, spokeswoman for the Davenport Community School District.
Shortly before the noon hour on Monday, one student noticed what Saul described as a “smaller-sized” pellet gun in the possession of another student and reported it to authorities.
Davenport police were called and investigated the incident. No information on the student with the pellet gun was released.

“The important thing to emphasize is that if a student sees something that doesn’t look right to them, please tell an adult,” Saul said.
That’s what happened in the pellet gun incident, she added.
