INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - A student was caught with a BB gun Friday at a school on the north side of Indianapolis.

It happened at Northview Middle School in Washington Township.

School leaders say they got a tip about it at the beginning of the school day and immediately tracked down the student.

They found the BB gun in a backpack.

In a letter to parents, school leaders say "Weapons in our schools are not tolerated and our administration is moving forward with strict disciplinary action."

They go on to say that they are "truly grateful that one of our outstanding students made us aware of the incident."

This comes on the heels of five different incidents where students were caught with gun at school.

The two most recent happened just earlier this week.

No one was hurt.
