Fight at school includes gun rumors, parents alerted next day

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A fight at school between two students included rumors of a weapon, and parents weren't notified until the next day.

Wednesday, at Saint Xavier High School officials said there was a verbal fight between two seniors that resulted from a fight on Tuesday.

During the fight it was rumored one of the teenagers was in possession of a gun. Brother Edward Driscoll sent an email notification to parents Friday addressing the issue stating, "Administrators and our security officer intervened immediately and investigated the situation very thoroughly. The safety of our students was our primary concern. The student was not in possession of a gun and there is no evidence of any such weapon. I am confident that the situation was handled appropriately and professionally in accordance with school policies. While I cannot discuss the details of any student's case with anyone other than his parents, I assure you that appropriate disciplinary actions were taken."

The notification said the reason for the delay in informing parents was due to an investigation.
