Loaded clip found at Beaufort elementary school

Posted: Updated:

BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - Beaufort County deputies say one of their officers lost a loaded pistol magazine outside Lady's Island Elementary School during a training exercise.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head reports that a janitor working at the school Christmas Eve found the magazine filled with bullets outside the school cafeteria and turned it into authorities.

Deputies say the clip fell from the officer's utility belt during training at the school the day before. Officers used the school building and grounds because students were off on winter break.

Authorities determined who the magazine belonged to by doing an in inventory of all the deputies involved in the training.
