State police said they have identified the student who brought a bullet on a school bus in Stafford on Thursday.

The incident is being handled administratively through the school, according to a news release from state police.

The bus company, M & J, contacted state police at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday when a bus driver found a bullet on the seat of a school bus while doing a sweep of the vehicle.  

That led to lockdowns at Stafford High School, Stafford Middle School and Stafford Elementary School.

Police responded to all three schools, as well as St. Edward's School in Stafford, seized the bullet and documented the bus runs, as well as the students who had been on the bus where the bullet was found.

For hours, no one other than investigators were allowed into or out of the school as police investigated.

Police completed their search as of 11:45 a.m. and found no additional bullets or contraband.

Police issued a news release on Friday afternoon saying they have identified the student.
