The students were taken to a juvenile detention facility.

Parents of students who attend the school are eager to learn more information about the incident.

"I don't want my kid to be in a school where there is guns or anything like that. No violence. I am even furious when he gets a D in his grades so as a parent I am not comfortable with that,"  said parent Kameika Armstrong.

Officials have revealed what type of gun the students had or how they came into possession of it.
