HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Police have charged two Whitesburg
Middle School students with carrying a concealed weapon after
police recovered a gun inside the school Thursday morning.
Police spokesman Sgt. Mark Roberts says Whitesburg Middle School
and Whitesburg Elementary were temporarily locked down while police
investigated. Administrators found a gun in a boys bathroom inside
the school at around 8:30 a.m. He says the gun was not loaded.
Huntsville City Schools Superintendent Ann Roy Moore says the
gun was found after a grandparent sent a tip to school officials
after overhearing a conversation between two students.
Roberts says the two students were boys and are currently being
held at the Neaves-Davis Center for Children.
