Blair Oaks Superintendent James Jones said Monday that two students are being investigated after they were caught with multiple weapons.

A release sent to parents said the pair were caught in the student parking lot with a plastic pellet gun. Jones said a search revealed there were more guns used for hunting inside the vehicle the students were in.

Jones believes the students made a mistake and that no other Blair Oaks students or staff were in danger.

"It appears that today's incident was a case of poor judgment," Jones said in the release. "We have determined that students involved had no intent to harm anyone with the weapons."

The release does not say how many weapons were seized or the names of the students. Jones said school district officials and Cole County sheriff's deputies are investigating. Both students could be expelled from school.
