(COLUMBUS) - A prosecutor says a Columbus East High School Indiana teacher who left a rifle visible in his pickup truck parked on school grounds won't face charges.

Bartholomew County Prosecutor Bill Nash reviewed the Columbus Police Department report about the rifle found last Thursday in Mike Metz's truck and said he didn't believe that Metz intended to bring the gun to school.

Metz, who teaches a construction class at Columbus East High School, told police he was coyote hunting the night before and mistakenly left the gun in his truck.

Two students spotted the rifle in the front passenger side of the pickup and reported it to school officials, who then notified police.

Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. officials said that Metz was suspended as the investigation took place.
