CHARLESTON, West Virginia — A Kanawha County student has been expelled for threatening to bring a gun to school.

Riverside High School Principal Valery Harper tells media outlets that the student has been turned over to the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department.

Harper says the threat was directed at the entire student body and not any individual student. She says the student made the threat in a conversation with other students, who notified school officials.

Cpl. Brian Humphreys with the sheriff's department says the incident is under investigation.
