According to police, officers responded to the school at 8 Progress Drive around 10 a.m. the morning of Dec. 3. Police said a 38-year-old man, a student at the institute, told them he had parked his car at school that morning and left a handgun inside.

Police searched the area but weren’t able to recover the handgun. School was dismissed as the investigation got underway, police said.

Authorities are still actively investigating.
