(Westlake) - A Westlake City Schools bus driver found a cartridge for a .380auto firearm on the floor of Bus 11 while sweeping the vehicle late afternoon on Tuesday. That bus carries students from Lee Burneson Middle School and Parkside Intermediate School.
Westlake PD officers interviewed all students who were on the bus. Students' lockers were checked by school staff. No weapon was found and no one knew anything about the cartridge.
Westlake Police are asking parents who have that caliber ammunition in the home or a weapon which chambers such to check that such items are properly secured. Also, police say those parents should have a serious talk with their children about the incident.
