Utah students find handgun in snowbank at school bus stop

Share

PLEASANT GROVE, Utah (AP) — A Utah school district is praising two elementary school students who reported to a school bus driver that they’d found a handgun in a snow bank at their bus stop.

A note sent to parents by the Alpine School District calls the boys heroes for not touching the gun and instead reporting their discovery Friday.

A school resource officer responded and recovered the gun.

Pleasant Grove police say they believe the gun was connected to a situation that unfolded over two nights at a nearby home and in which a man ran the scene before police arrived Wednesday night.

Nicholas William Haun was arrested Thursday night on suspicion of aggravated assault and other crimes.
