Unloaded Handgun Found at Westside High

Westside High School in Bibb County was placed on a code red lockdown this morning after an officer found an unloaded handgun in the ceiling of a boys bathroom.

A district news release says campus police officer Mike Cheek found the gun a little after 10 a.m. during a routine campus check near the gym.

Officers searched the school and didn't find any more contraband, the release says.

The lockdown was lifted about 50 minutes later.

School spokesman David Gowan didn't know what type of handgun it was and said it probably was placed there yesterday.

Gowan said this is the eighth gun incident at a Bibb campus during this school year. Three of them were at Howard High.

Campus police encourage anyone with information on this incident at Westside High to call Macon Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
