    An ammunition store sign near a school has been ordered removed because of its proximity to students.

    A Northern California school district has ordered removal of an ammunition store sign on a campus football stadium scoreboard.

    El Dorado Union High School District officials decided the Ammo Depot sign on the Ponderosa High School scoreboard was inappropriate.

    The family-run Ammo Depot store opened in Rancho Cordova last year and a contract was signed with the Shingle Springs school a short time later. Ammo Deport doesn't sell guns.

    The Sacramento Bee reports Ammo Deport sent a letter to district officers stating that it might pursue breach of contract lawsuit.

    Shooting sports are popular in Shingle Springs, which is about 35 miles north of Sacramento.
