Police are investigating a report of a student being found in possession of a gun magazine on the compound of an urban school sometime after 11 a.m. today.
The 14-year-old male student, who was later interviewed by lawmen, said he took up the magazine unknown to his father and took it to school.
No other details have been released by police. However, Barbados TODAY was reliably informed by both teachers and students that the incident took place at Combermere School.
Repeated calls to Principal Vere Parris for a comment went unanswered.
