Earlier today, a tenth grader at Hamilton High School was found to be in possession of a semi-automatic .25 caliber pistol with one round in the chamber and two in the magazine.

The 15-year-old student, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, was located in class and searched by Shelby County Sheriff's detectives after another student tipped off school administrators.

The student told a school resource officer that he brought the gun to school for protection. But after questioning, it was revealed that the student felt he needed protection because of a previous off-campus fight. Further investigation implicated a 14-year-old male, and that student was found to be in possession of brass knuckles.

Both students were taken into custody and charged with possession of a weapon on school property. They were transferred to Shelby County Juvenile Court.
