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.
