A gun was found at a school in Clayton County Wednesday morning.

A staff member at Lovejoy High School overheard a conversation between students regarding a weapon.

The staff member told school officials who informed the school resource officer.

The school went into lockdown for about 20 minutes at 11:15 a. m..

An unloaded 22-automatic handgun was later located in a student's locker.

Two boys were taken into custody and their parents were notified.

The student who brought the gun on campus was somehow able to avoid the school's metal detectors when entering the building.

Police are investigating.
