JACKSON-On Wednesday January 11, 2017 at approximately 7:05 am, multiple Jackson Police Officers responded to the Jackson Memorial High School on the report of a subject on a bus being in possession of a gun.


Upon investigation, it was discovered that two teenaged males on the bus were talking when for unknown reasons, one of the males reportedly yelled “gun”. In response, another teenaged male loudly exclaimed that the other subject had a gun. The bus driver then stopped the bus and called for assistance.


Responding officers escorted all students off of the bus and conducted a search for any weapons. No weapons were found and it was determined that no threats were made to any students.
