Kent, Ohio (AP) -- Police say parents were alerted when a hunter with a shotgun wandered onto school grounds in northeast Ohio.

After a school bus driver in kent saw the man Tuesday morning, police were notified in the community about 30 miles southeast of Cleveland.

Kent police Lt. Jayme Cole says officers stopped the man before 8 a.m. on property between a high school and a middle school and learned he was walking from to a hunting spot from his home.

The schools informed parents of the situation through automated phone calls.

Cole says school children were never in danger. He says police took the man's weapon, escorted him away from the schools and transported him to his destination.

No charges were filed.

Ohio's season for hunting deer with guns opened Monday.
