BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Brunswick County Schools student is under investigation after the child reportedly had a knife on a school bus.
A school district spokeswoman says yesterday afternoon a Cedar Grove Middle School bus driver contacted 911 and the school to inform them a student had a knife on the bus.
