LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Police arrested two Jefferson County high school students after a gun was found in a backpack.

According to WHAS-TV, school officials received a call Monday from a family member concerned that a student at Valley High School may have been carrying a weapon.

When the security staff confronted the student, they said he dropped the backpack he was carrying and ran. Officials searched the backpack and found two guns.

Police caught up with the student in a neighborhood near the school and arrested him. Another student he was talking to was also arrested.

Both are charged with unlawful possession of a weapon on school property, and one juvenile is facing an additional charge of fleeing or evading police.

Police are not releasing the students' names because of their ages.
