By  | 

Two teenage boys were taken into custody Thursday after the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a student armed with a weapon headed to Destin Middle School.

Deputies converged at the school after initially being told the teens were on a bus headed to Destin Middle School. No weapon was found.

Deputies located the 16-year old and 13-year old suspects a short time later walking on Highway 98 near Benning Drive. The 16-year old was found to have the BB gun tucked into his waistband.

No one was injured and the teens are currently being questioned. Investigators say they also face charges in connection with an incident overnight on Okaloosa Island.

Additional details will be released as they become available.
