LOGAN, W.Va. (AP) - Logan County school officials have hired a private investigator to look into the circumstances surrounding the suspension of a middle school student who wore a National Rifle Association T-shirt to school.
 
WCHS-TV reports that eighth-grader Jared Marcum received a one-day suspension last month for causing a disruption at the school.
 
Allen Larieris has said his stepson was waiting in line in the school cafeteria when a teacher ordered him to remove the T-shirt or turn it inside out.
 
In a news release, school officials say they hired an independent investigator to ensure a complete, objective evaluation of the situation. The investigator's report is expected soon.
 
Superintendent Wilma Zigmond also noted that shirts that depict guns or promote the NRA are not expressly forbidden by school policy.
