WESTLAKE, OH (WOIO) -

A Westlake City Schools bus driver found a cartridge for a .380auto firearm on the floor of bus 11 while sweeping the vehicle after the morning run on Tuesday.

That bus carries students from Lee Burneson Middle School and Parkside Intermediate School. 

All students who rode that bus either at dismissal on June 10 or this morning were interviewed by Westlake PD officers. Their lockers were checked by school staff; no weapon was found and no one professed any knowledge of the incident. 

Parents who have that caliber ammunition in the home are strongly urged to check that those items are properly secured. Also, those parents should have a serious talk with their children about the incident and gun safety as well. 

Anonymous tips about this matter or any Westlake school safety issue may be called into the Safe Schools Helpline at 440.250.1199.
