DOVER, Del. (AP) — Police say a gun was fired in the restroom of a middle school in Delaware but no one was injured. Two male students, ages 12 and 13, are in custody.

A police news release says officers were called to Central Middle School in Dover about 12:15 p.m. Tuesday after staff heard a gunshot in a boys restroom. Officers say officials reviewed video footage and identified a 13-year-old student as the only person in the restroom.

Police took the boy into custody and found a Smith and Wesson .380-caliber handgun in another restroom. Investigators say the boy took the gun from a 12-year-old's locker. Police say the 12-year-old admitted to stealing his father's gun and bringing it to school.

Police say both boys will be charged with weapons offenses.
