SIMPSONVILLE, SC (FOX CAROLINA) - A student has been suspended after they brought an unloaded handgun to the Golden Strip Career Center, according to Greenville County Schools Director of Media Relation Tim Waller. 

According to Waller, two students from Hillcrest High school took another student from the same school to the Golden Strip Career Center. Waller says the director observed the student approaching the center and stopped him for questioning.
