Two Baltimore city high school students were arrested Monday after they were found in the bathroom at the Renaissance Academy High School with an unloaded hand gun, city school officials said.

The incident occurred during the "morning class change" at Renaissance Academy, a school located in Southwest Baltimore, a statement from the school system said.

Both students were arrested, the statement said.

The incident is under investigation and the disciplinary process is underway, officials said.

Students could face extended suspension or expulsion, as well as a referral to Baltimore City police, per the school system's disciplinary code, which prohibits possession of a firearm on school grounds.
