Loaded Gun Confiscated from Minneapolis School Staffer

Had license to carry, but not at school


A loaded handgun was confiscated Monday from a staff member's locker soon after instruction began at an elementary magnet school in Minneapolis, police said.

The gun was recovered at about 8:30 a.m. from inside the locked locker in the staff locker room at the 900-student Seward Montessori School at 2309 28th Av. S., said police Sgt. William Palmer.

The female staffer at the K-8 school has a permit to carry a weapon, "but you still can't have it in the school," Palmer said.
