BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - East Baton Rouge Parish authorities have arrested two 8th-graders at Crestworth Middle School after an unloaded gun was found inside the book bag of one of them.

The sheriff’s office says a student reported seeing the weapon to a School Resource Officer on campus about 12:30 p.m. Monday.

No threats were made.

A sheriff’s office news release says a 14-year-old student apparently brought the unloaded, 9mm handgun to school to show it off. The sheriff’s office says the student allegedly gave the bag - with the weapon inside - to another 14-year-old student. Both teenagers were booked with illegal carrying of a firearm on a school campus after the campus officer was notified.

Their names were not released because of their age.
