Authorities say they were alerted to the student’s vehicle on drug suspicions. That's when they found the unexpected, a shotgun.

Cairo High School Principal Tim Helms calls the incident unfortunate and explained where the gun was found.

"Really, underneath the back seat floor board of the car; had it for hunting, actually turkey hunting, this type of thing. But still, safety is paramount here at our school."

The student has been arrested, charged with bringing a weapon on school grounds. He is also suspended and must go before a tribunal board who will decide if the student will be expelled.
