MONTPELIER, Ohio (AP) - 2 of the four employees who have agreed to carry guns at a rural Ohio school apparently have law enforcement backgrounds.

Officials in the Montpelier school district caused a stir last week after announcing plans to arm a handful of its non-teaching employees with handguns.

The Bryan Times (http://bit.ly/RWc9Eq ) reports that 1 of the employees who plans to carry a gun is a retired police officer, while another is currently a part-time officer.

School officials are not identifying the employees, saying only that they are workers who don't directly supervise students at the district's one building and that they all volunteered to be armed.

The four also will take a weapons training course.

A message was left at the school's office after it had closed Wednesday.
