LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Clark County School District police confirmed arresting two teens at Gibson Middle School for holding a firearm and ammo while on campus last week.

Capt. Ken Young, of CCSD police, said the students - 13 and 14 years old - were taken into custody at about 3 p.m. Friday.

According to Young, one of the students was found with a firearm while the other was holding ammo. 

There were no injuries, and a lockdown was not issued on that day, police said. The pair were charged with possession of a dangerous weapon on school property.

This was not CCSD's only incident involving a student with a gun on that day. In a separate incident, a 12-year-old was taken into custody after bringing a loaded gun to Saville Middle School.

So far, the school district's police department confiscated 11 firearms and eight BB/pellet guns during the school year, according to Young.
