TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A video making its rounds on social media is now at the center of a Leon County Schools investigation.

School officials are calling the video "appalling and disgusting."

A viewer sent WCTV a screen recording of the video in question. In it, you can see a male driving down a rural road, holding what appears to be a gun.

At one point, he has the passenger hold the steering wheel, while he shoots the weapon out the window. Throughout the video, you can also hear someone yelling racial slurs and profanity. The clip lasts about 20 seconds.

In a letter sent to parents, Chiles High School Principal Joe Burgess said:

It is not known who the student or students involved are, or when and where the incident took place. It has not been confirmed what kind of weapon was involved.

Leon County Schools confirms to WCTV that the video does feature a Chiles High School student and that they are investigating the off-campus incident.

In a statement, LCS Superintendent Rocky Hanna said the following:

To view the original video,
