 (KMOV) – Police say a teacher confiscated a gun from a student at a St. Louis public school Thursday afternoon.

A St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department spokesperson said a group of students were involved in a fight outside Roosevelt High School in the 3200 block of Hartford just before 3:30 p.m.

As the fight moved inside, a 17-year-old male was seen taking a gun out from his backpack. A teacher saw the gun, secured the student and took the weapon.

Authorities were notified and officers later found the student was in possession of a second firearm inside his backpack.

Police arrested a teen and a second 17-year-old student was taken into custody for his involvement in the fight.

Additional details were not immediately available.
