An Evergreen High Schoolstudent is facing possible expulsion after a gun was found in his vehicle.

Officials say they thinkthe student accidentally left the in his car. They say when the 17-year-old gotto school, he must have realized he had the gun, and tried to hide it under thecar seat. Someone saw him doing that, though, and the Fulton County Sheriff'sOffice was called to investigate.

According to officials,two guns were found that could be used for hunting.

"We live in anagricultural community, and kids do go hunting," said Superintendent Jim Wyse. "That'spart of the culture. But at the same time, our students know not to bring gunsto school. They can't have them anywhere on the campus, and it's a very seriousoffense and we do need to take the appropriate action."

No threats were ever madeby the student, and he did not bring a gun inside the school, but he has beenarrested and faces suspension, as well as a possible expulsion.
