SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Parents and students are concerned after someone found a bullet in a Point Loma High School restroom.

The incident was reported on Monday and while students say there was a lack of communication from school staff, word traveled fast on campus. The school says police are now investigating.

"We never heard anything over the intercom or anything," says senior Javan Hedrick. "In my 4th period class, it came up out of nowhere. Everyone was talking about some bullet found in the boys bathroom."

Around noon, parents received an email sent from the school's principal, that says in part:

"At Point Loma, our first priority is to provide a safe and secure learning environment for our students. As such, I wanted to make you aware of an incident that occurred this morning. School Police investigated a report of a bullet found on the floor of the boys restroom. After an investigation, it was determined there was no threat."

Some parents pulled their kids out of class and aren't sure when they'll send them back.

"I walked into the office, it was a crazy amount of kids trying to go home," says Hedrick.

Students say they would have felt a little better if school staff talked to them about the incident.

"If something was to happen, no one would of had any idea."

The principal is encouraging students to contact Crime Stoppers if they have any information about the incident at 888-580-8477 or text 27463 (CRIMES). All tips are anonymous.
