SALISBURY — An East Rowan High School student was cited for bringing a knife to school, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

Authorities said 16-year-old Chandler Austin King had a hunting knife in his backpack while at school. He was disciplined by the school and issued a citation for misdemeanor possession of a weapon on campus.
