HENRICO Co., Va. (WWBT) - Henrico police charged two students with having a gun at John Rolfe Middle School.

Staff told the school resource officer about the report of a gun on school grounds. They then worked together to detain two students and secure the weapon.

“The preliminary investigation revealed that a student came to the school with a handgun and showed it to a second student, who took possession of the weapon and walked away, keeping the gun,” a release said.

Both students were charged with underage possession of a firearm and possession of a gun on school property. The two were taken to the Henrico Juvenile Detention Home.
