— Three students were detained Thursday after a handgun was found on campus in the possession of a Millbrook High School student.

Wake County schools spokeswoman Heather Lawing said two students alerted school administrators Thursday that a student on the Millbrook High School campus had a weapon.

The school resource officer was alerted and a handgun was found in the possession of a 14-year-old student whose name was not released. The gun was secured without incident, Raleigh police said.

During an investigation into the incident, it was discovered that two other students handled the gun at different times while it was on campus.

Raleigh police said the gun was not fired on school grounds or pointed at other students.

The charges against the 14-year-old student were not released because the student is a juvenile.

    Before deportation which should be considered non-negotiable, the two need to be imprisoned for the usual amount of time this crime calls for, then deported. Just sending them back is not punishment. Back to their homes, their families? I didn't realize the US Government was a travel agent.

    A whole week in office when one of his "DAY ONE" promises was to get rid of gun free zones.

    What does day one mean to you?

    Rod, you can pass a "law," that prohibits something but that does not stop it. Ergo prostitution, illegal immigration, speeding, marijuana etcetera. You do realize PRESIDENT Trump has been in office only a week, and I betcha if we had a wall this incident would not have happened.

    Thank goodness they found the gun before these geniuses used it for conflict resolution. This is quite a dangerous mind set in these individuals. I hope LE pursues finding out if they are in a gang, and if they are here legally. WRAL could you please do a follow-up on these points? Thank-you!

    But the SRO here confronted someone with a gun and did not lift the person up in the air and slam them down to the ground before taking the gun.

    Yet that was done to a small girl who was standing in a chair and that was deemed ok for the SRO to do, because you may have been mouthing off to him.

    Why aren't you Trump voters ok with this?

    One of his promised actions is to make schools gun free zones.

    No really though, when is the last time you saw a Latino person commit a mass school shooting? I've seen more military vets commit these crimes than Latinos. Maybe if we focus on helping the veterans and stop worrying so much about a stupid wall then we can actually help this country prevent some real tragedies. There have been 8 mass shootings since 2010 carried out by Vets. How many do you think were carried out by people from Mexico? I urge you to look at this graph: https://www.statista.com/statistics/476456/mass-shootings-in-the-us-by-shooter-s-race/
