PRINCETON — Authorities with the Princeton Police Department said no weapon was found on a school bus at the Princeton Middle School. According to Chief P.V. Powell, the department responded to a 911 call made before 7 a.m.

“We received a call from 911 that a student made a statement that he had one or more guns,” Powell said.

Powell said he wasn’t sure who made the initial 911 call, but that the main issue was that all the students were safe and no gun was involved.
