CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Two North Carolina elementary school students were charged with bringing a loaded gun and a box cutter to school on Thursday.

Parents say they found out about the incident after officials from Huntingtowne Farms Elementary School in Charlotte sent them a message alerting them of the alleged disturbance.

The weapons were located in the students’ backpacks after other kids reported them to school officials, according to WBTV. Sources say the two kids are about 10 years old.

There is no word on the students’ motive and the investigation is ongoing.
