TEXARKANA, Texas -- Texarkana ISD officials are investigating a Texas Middle School student allegedly bringing a firearm to campus Wednesday.

According to the school principal's statement to parents, TMS administration was made aware after the school day that a student said they had brought a firearm onto campus grounds.
