Ammunition discovery locks down elementary school

COOK, Minn. — An elementary student in St. Louis County forgot to check his pockets, which led to a lockdown at his school.

The sheriff's department says Cook School in Cook was locked down after two rounds of ammunition were found in the jacket of a ten-year-old boy. Authorities say he had worn the jacket hunting with his father and inadvertently brought the ammunition to school.

Officials conducted a search of backpacks and lockers.
