BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies say two Broadmoor Middle School students were arrested after an unloaded gun was found at school.
Casey Rayborn Hicks, a sheriff's office spokeswoman, an unnamed student reported seeing two other students with a gun at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.
Hicks tells The Advocate school administrators found the unloaded .25 caliber handgun in the booksack of a 15-year-old eighth-grader who was given the gun by a 13-year-old seventh-grader.
Deputies booked both students into the East Baton Rouge Parish Juvenile Detention Center on one count of carrying a firearm by a student on school property.
