The officer, who took all three into custody, then found a 9 mm handgun in a backpack belonging to one of the arrestees, police said.

The school was placed on “soft lockdown” for a short period of time so that police officers could make sure there were no active threats to the school.

Two of the three arrested were charged with disorderly conduct while the third juvenile was charged with unlawful use of a weapon on school grounds, unlawful possession of ammunition and disorderly conduct, police said.
