OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — Police are investigating after a loaded gun was found outside a middle school in Olathe.

According to police, a parent discovered the gun on the ground near a parking lot at Pioneer Trail Middle School Tuesday morning. Authorities say the parent notified school officials and a resource officer secured the weapon.

Olathe assistant superintendent Erin Dugan said the school was not put on lockdown because the gun was found and secured before an announcement could be made.
