Gun in trash can after school; 2 teens arrested

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office says a 13-year-old and a 14-year-old were arrested after a Park Forest Middle School student reported that another student had a gun, and administrators found a loaded .40-caliber handgun in an outdoor trash can.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks says the incident occurred after school but on school property. She says both teens were booked with possessing a stolen gun and illegally carrying a weapon on school property.

She did not give their genders.

She says the handgun was in a book bag in the trash can.

Hicks says investigators believe the gun was stolen last year from a house in Tangipahoa Parish.

She says the investigation is continuing and more arrests are possible.
