Students find possible murder weapon on school bus

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Students may have discovered a murder weapon on a school bus Wednesday morning in Panola County.

South Panola Superintendent Mike Foster confirms a gun was found by children on a school bus. The students told the driver and it was reported and turned in to authorities.

The same bus had been checked earlier, but nothing was found on the first search.

District Attorney John Champion confirms that investigators are testing to see if the gun was used in last week's homicide of Tovell Henderson.

Christopher Thomas, Ladaron Taylor, and Quendravious Taylor are charged with capital murder. Deshaun Alexander is charged with accessory.
