Oops: Officer leaves gun inside Indiana school restroom

KOUTS, Ind. – Officials say a police officer left his loaded handgun behind in a staff restroom of a rural northwestern Indiana school.

East Porter County Schools superintendent Rod Gardin said the school resource officer removed the gun while using the restroom and didn’t retrieve it before responding to an emergency text message.

Gardin told The Times of Munster (http://bit.ly/1muoE5i) that a teacher at Morgan Township School near the town of Kouts found the gun inside the locked restroom Tuesday in its elementary/middle school section.

Kouts Police Chief Jim Smith said the officer faces disciplinary action according to police department policy and will remain a school resource officer.

Gardin said no students at the school about 20 miles southeast of Gary came in contact with the gun.
