Both were arrested and charged with possession of a controlled dangerous subject, possession of a firearm by a minor, trespassing and several other firearm charges, police said.

The Capital is not identifying the minor because many cases in which children are charged as adults get sent back to juvenile court. The Capital does not report on juvenile court.
