For the third time this month, staff found live .22 caliber shells at an Oregon school.
Wednesday morning rounds were discovered in a locker room and the field house at Oregon High School. After several hours of searching, a student came forward saying they may have accidentally fallen out of his sweatshirt.
Shells were also recovered at Rome Corners Intermediate School on Monday. More .22 rounds turned up at Oregon Middle School earlier this month. Staff are not sure where those shells came from.
Before the student came forward Wednesday, Oregon Police searched "the entire field house, all unlocked lockers, the common areas of the school, all hallways, all trash receptacles, all entrances and exits and pathways leading up to the school, as well as all locker rooms and restrooms. Police did not locate any additional ammunition nor did they locate a firearm or any weapons."
District staff cannot discuss the discipline of a student, but say bringing live rounds inside a school building is against policy.
