Two 17-year-old stu­dents were ar­rested Fri­day af­ter po­lice said they had a gun at Cen­tral Cabar­rus High School in Cabar­rus County, NC.

Jalen Rashun Dixon and Sieaira Lil­lian West were each charged with felony weapons on cam­pus or other ed­u­ca­tional prop­erty, ac­cord­ing to a Con­cord Po­lice De­part­ment news re­lease. Dixon also was charge with pos­ses­sion of a stolen firearm, the news re­lease said. Dixon took the gun to school Fri­day “and at some point gave the firearm to West,” ac­cord­ing to the news re­lease. A school ad­min­is­tra­tor found the gun in West’s back­pack, the news re­lease said. The gun had been stolen, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. The de­part­ment has not dis­closed the type of gun Dixon is ac­cused of tak­ing to the school and if it had any bul­lets. Po­lice also aren’t say­ing if they know why the gun was taken to the cam­pus and given to West.
