INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two students were expelled from a Christian school on the city’s south side after they were caught carrying a handgun and ammunition on Monday, the school said.

According to Suburban Christian School administrators, one junior high student brought an unloaded handgun to school, and another junior high student brought a loaded magazine.

Administrators called local police, and the students were taken into custody and expelled from the school.

According to the school’s investigation, the students did not threaten or harm any students.

The school remained closed Tuesday. School administrators plan to resume classes Wednesday.

Suburban Christian School is dedicated to providing a Christian education in a safe environment. To that end, our school policies prohibit students from bringing items to school that would distract from our educational mission or pose a danger to other students. We also employ a School Resource Officer to ensure that our campus is safe; and we coordinate with Perry Township schools, local police, and a local security agency on developing and maintaining security procedures.
