A high school resource officer at Rocky River High School found a loaded firearm in the car of a student this morning at Rocky River High School. The resource officer was patrolling the student parking lot and noticed an open container of alcohol in the front seat floorboard of a vehicle on campus. The student who drove the car to the school, Asia Scott (B/F, 16 years of age), was removed from class and a search was performed on the vehicle in question. A knife and a loaded .32 caliber revolver handgun were located within the vehicle.
