Earlier this morning before school started, a bus dropped off a rider in front of Adams Elementary School.  As the they exited the bus, they informed the bus driver that a gun was laying on the grass boulevard to the west of the school.

The bus driver called the Davenport Police Department and the school. The School Security Professional went out immediately to secure the scene and waited for the police to arrive to take possession of the weapon.

There is no reason at this time to believe that this is school related. We'll update as more information is released.
