APD spokesperson Kendra Doshier said Friday that the handgun was loaded with a full magazine, but no round was in the chamber. After it’s discovery, Doshier said the gun was turned over to APD and seized as evidence.

While Esary could not comment on what disciplinary action, if any, was taken on the student in this specific case, she said the section on Weapons and Firearms in the ASD student handbook outlines disciplinary practice.
