Two students were arrested Thursday after they were found to be in possession of a stun gun on the campus of First Coast High School.
Principal Timothy Simmons told parents in a recorded phone call that school administrators got a tip about the gun Duval County School Police confiscated the gun from the students after investigating.
The students could face criminal charges, Simmons said. Action News Jax has requested the students' arrest reports for more information on the incident.
In the past week, there have been multiple incidents of firearms being found on the campus of First Coast High and Simmons called this "completely unacceptable" and said this would most likely lead to random searches of students' belongings.
Action News Jax found a social media post from a parent discussing the finding of the stun gun. That parent suggested that parents frisk their students in the morning. Some parents who commented on the post said their students feel safe at the school because administrators are conducting frequent searches.
