AUBURN, Ind. (WFFT) - Guns are being banned from the DeKalb County Court House under a new ordinance.

There was already a court order banning weapons, but county commissioners felt they needed an ordinance.

The ordinance bans guns, knives and other weapons.

Commissioners told FOX 55 this is the first step in adding more security to the court house, including metal detectors which could come later this year.
