Sniper nest discovered near Kennedy-King College

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Chicago Police Department made a frightening discovery on the South Side of the city last week.

Officials say they found a high-powered semi-automatic weapon about a block from the campus of Kennedy King college, near 64th and Lowe last Thursday. Officers say the nest was found on top of a garage across from a soccer field on campus.

At the scene, officers recovered a fully loaded Mac-10.

Kennedy King officials say they have notified students. Although, it does not appear that anyone on campus was ever in any danger.

City Colleges of Chicago released this statement on the issue Monday night:

We are legally required to send out an alert to our students and staff when we become aware of an incident in proximity to the campus. This incident did not take place on campus and all inquiries should go through CPD. It is the assessment of the CCC Safety and Security Office that there was no threat to the campus.
