SPRING HILL, Kan. (AP) — Johnson County authorities say a handgun was found in a student's backpack outside Spring Hill High School. The Kansas City Star reports that a Johnson County sheriff's deputy assigned as a school resource officer was checking on a report of a student "in need of care" outside the school Thursday when the gun was found. Spring Hill School District officials later posted a notice about the incident on the district website. The sheriff's office says the student wasn't arrested, but was given help in obtaining mental health treatment. Spring Hill is a community of about 5,500 residents in southern Johnson County.
