ODESSA, TX (KWES) - One Permian High School student is facing disciplinary action following an incident on Friday afternoon.
Ector County ISD administrators tell NewsWest 9, Permian High School administrators received a tip of a student on campus, possibly with a gun.
We're told campus police located the student and authorities found a pellet gun in his backpack.
Administrators say that the pellet gun is not illegal and the student won't face and criminal charges. However, the gun is a violation of the student code of conduct.
