DENVER (AP) - Denver police are holding two juveniles who they say walked into an empty school building armed with two long rifles.
Police say the two were taken into custody early today.
Police had earlier surrounded Noel Middle School and a bomb squad was called to the scene after janitors reported a break-in Monday night. Police sent a telephone notification to neighborhood residents warning them to stay indoors.
White says officers watched the two young people on the school's security cameras and saw they were carrying backpacks as well as rifles. Police tried to use the school's public address system to try to communicate with them.
Officers had feared the backpacks contained explosives.
