Two Butler County students were taken into custody Tuesday after officials said one of the students a sold a gun to another student at Seneca Valley Intermediate High School.

No one was injured.

The district said on its website Tuesday that the incident was reported shortly after school started. High school administrators were notified through student reports that a student was seen with a gun at the intermediate high school.

Jackson police and a district school police officer were notified. They began investigating the incident.

Officials said police found a gun in the glove compartment of a student’s vehicle parked outside the school, which they believe was sold to the student by another student. The gun was immediately turned over to the school police officer, police said.

Officials did not disclose what type of gun was discovered.

Both students were arrested and removed from the school campus, officials said.

“We want to reiterate that all students are safe. As we know more information, we will share it with you,” the district wrote on its website.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
