RICHWOOD, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia teacher charged with bringing a loaded gun to school has resigned from her job.

Officials at the Nicholas County Board of Education say they accepted 34-year-old Shana Knight’s resignation from the Cherry River Elementary school on Monday night.

Knight was arrested earlier this month and charged with possessing a deadly weapon at an educational facility. Authorities say the gun was a loaded Smith & Wesson .38-caliber revolver but have not released a possible motive or said specifically where the gun was on school property.

State law prohibits firearms on any primary or secondary educational facility, unless the school is private and has a written policy allowing firearms.

Knight’s lawyer declined to comment.
