Guns and ammunition found at Blacksburg School

BLACKSBURG, VA (WSLS) - Police say they've arrested a 13-year-old in connection with guns and ammunition found at Blacksburg Middle School Tuesday.

Officers tell us two handguns and ammunition were found at the school by Blacksburg Middle School leaders and the Blacksburg Middle School Resource Officer around 12:26 p.m.

Montgomery County School leaders chose to evacuate and close the school down, after the discovery.  That included no classes for high school students, who are using the school following the collapse of the gym roof at Blacksburg High School back in January.

Police are searching the school just in case there are additional weapons.
