Two students are in custody after a long gun was found on the grounds of St. Albans at the National Cathedral.

The two male students from St. Albans school are being questioned by police, after a weapon was found in the backseat of one of their cars.

Lieutenant Nicholas Bruel says that police received a call shortly after 8 a.m. Bruel says St. Albans and the National Cathedral Schools were put on lock down while police investigated.

Bruel says police are not releasing details about the weapon.

No shots were fired and no injuries were reported. Classes resumed this morning around 9 a.m. About 1,500 students attend school on the cathedral grounds.
