Gun Found at Chillicothe Middle School, Students Charged

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (WTVN)--Two Chillicothe Middle School students are facing charges after authorities found a gun and ammunition inside the school yesterday.  

Police say they were called to the school after reports of a gun on campus placed both the middle and high schools on lockdown.  

A search soon discovered an unloaded revolver plus ammunition and two students were charged with illegally carrying a firearm on school grounds.  

Officials say there were no direct threats made to any students or staff and all area schools opened for classes Wednesday.
