A student at Highland Park High School found two bullets in her backpack during lunch today, Highland Park ISD spokeswoman Helen Williams said. The girl immediately alerted an assistant principal.
Williams said the girl hadn’t used the backpack in weeks. Given its plain appearance, it’s possible that it was used by someone else in her family.
“It could have been something where her dad went to a shooting range and left ammo in there,” Williams said.
Administrators don’t believe what happened today is related to the recent spate of threats at the high school, but the district still made parents aware via email. Teachers broke the news to students.
