Two elementary school-age children were taken into juvenile custody Thursday morning after a handgun was found in a student's bookbag at a Northwest Baltimore school, according to city school officials, The Sun's Erica Green reported.

City school police officers found the handgun at KIPP Ujima Village Academy, a public charter school serving grades five through eight, according to Michael Sarbanes, a city schools spokesman.

No one at the school was hurt, and the gun was not loaded, Sarbanes said. Students reported seeing the gun early Thursday, and when school police conducted a search, they found the gun in a student's bookbag. It was later discovered that two students had brought the gun to school.
