LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Westport Middle School student is facing disciplinary action for bringing a weapon to the school on Tuesday.

JCPS spokeswoman Bonnie Hackbarth says the student brought the weapon to school showed it to another student.

"That student immediately reported it to school officials," Hackbarth said. "The student who brought the weapon has been disciplined in accordance with the code of conduct."

According to the code of conduct, bringing a weapon or dangerous object to school results in a suspension and recommendation for alternative school.

Hackbarth would not tell WDRB what kind of weapon it was. WDRB has filed an open records request in an attempt to find out more information.
