A preschool student in Drew County managed to get a handgun on a bus Tuesday, Nov. 14, according to a Facebook post in the preschool's Facebook group.

"The pre-K student told an older student on the bus about the gun," the post said. "That older student borrowed a friend’s cell phone and called the preschool student’s mother. The mother met the students when they got off of the bus at school and took possession of the gun."

The post went on to say that the school district notified police and an investigation is underway.

Parents expressed concern that they were notified via Facebook and not called. The preschool's post said parents are welcome to contact them with questions and concerns.
