Investigators said no weapons were ever found on the school’s campus.

One of the suspects appeared in court with his father and attorney. The other suspect’s attorney asked that the suspect's appearance be waived since his parents do not live locally.

Action News Jax is not naming or showing the face of either suspect because of their ages.

While reviewing the case, Judge Suzanne Bass asked the suspect’s father how his son was doing since being released back into his custody.

He told the judge his son is doing “very well” at home and was enrolled in online schooling.
