AUBURNDALE, Fla. (AP) - Police in Florida arrested four teenagers at one school in a single day, saying one brought a handgun and three others threatened a teacher.

The Ledger reports that a 14-year-old boy was taken into custody Monday at Auburndale High School. Auburndale police say the freshman student was overheard talking about the gun, and another student alerted an adult. A school resource officer and additional police officers confronted the boy and searched his bag. They reported finding a Glock handgun and ammunition.

Meanwhile, three other teens at the same school were arrested Monday and charged with leaving a threatening note for a teacher. Police say surveillance video shows the group leaving the note late Sunday night, and school staff members were able to identify them.
