SPRING HILL, Kan. (AP) -- Johnson County say a handgun was found in a student's backpack outside Spring Hill High School.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/14RsnU9 ) that a Johnson County sheriff's deputy assigned as a school resource officer was checking on a report of a student "in need of care" outside the school Thursday when the gun was found.

Spring Hill School District officials later posted a notice about the incident on the district website.

The sheriff's office says the student wasn't arrested, but was given help in obtaining mental health treatment.

Spring Hill is a community of about 5,500 residents in southern Johnson County.
