Two Hughes Academy eighth-graders are suspended and are facing expulsion after one brought an unloaded gun to school.
A teacher became suspicious Monday morning that a student might have a gun and notified school administrators. An investigation determined a male student had brought an unloaded gun to school and gave it to another male student.
The two 14-year-old boys were charged by police with having a weapon on school property and possession of a weapon by a person under 18. Their names were not released because they are juveniles.
School district spokesman Oby Lyles said the students have been suspended and will be recommended for expulsion.
