KEWAUNEE (NBC 26) — Kewaunee authorities say a threat investigation into a student disagreement revealed an "inappropriate storage of a hunting weapon" on school premises. Now, a student is facing consequences.

In a joint news release from the Kewaunee Police Department and Kewaunee School District, officials said the school received information regarding a possible safety concern involving a high school student on Wednesday.

According to the statement, at this time, based on the investigation of a disagreement between two students, a student will be facing significant school consequences and law enforcement consequences after finding inappropriate storage of a hunting weapon in a locked vehicle on school premises.

However, police said that based on the information to date, there was no credible threat to any other student or staff.

Police and school officials cannot comment further due to student confidentiality.
