The incident happened before 9 a.m. Tuesday. Students told the principal about seeing a gun. She opened the student's locker and found the pistol. She found ammunition in a backpack.

Rocori Superintendent Scott Staska says the boy is expected to be expelled.

4. All of the above actions were already illegal.
