GENERIC: Handcuffs, arrested, in custody, charged

JOHNSON COUNTY, KS (KCTV) – Two minors are facing charges following a scare at a Shawnee middle school on Wednesday.

The police said that two students brought guns to Hocker Grove Middle School in Shawnee, but no one was attacked or hurt.

The principal said other students notified staff about the guns.

He also reminded parents to have conversations with their kids about what is acceptable to bring on school grounds.

The Johnson County District Attorney's Office confirmed later in the day that the two minors, both 13 years old, had been charged with juvenile possession of a firearm.
