Nation Ford High School student found with weapon on bus

Police and school officials in Fort Mill are investigating after a student was found on a school bus with a taser. 

Charlotte Mecklenburg police tell FOX 46 that the incident happened on a Nation Ford High School bus Wednesday afternoon.

According to Nation Ford school officials, the taser was found on bus number four sometime during the student’s commute home, and that there were other students on board the bus at the time.
