The Department of Homeland Security has recommended two Millbrook High School students be returned to Central America following their arrest Thursday for having a gun on campus.
Franklin Mauricio Castillo-Diaz, 17, and Elsy Nohemy Diaz-Quintanilla, 17, were arrested Thursday after school officials and Raleigh police learned they were in possession of a gun on campus.
A 14-year-old student was found to be in possession of the weapon on campus Thursday. A juvenile petition will be obtained on the 14-year-old, Raleigh police said.
Officials seized a .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun and its ammunition from the 14-year-old without incident. A followup investigation revealed all three students were in possession of the gun at some point Thursday.
The weapon was not reported to have been fired, pointed, or displayed on school grounds, Raleigh police said.
