GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- Two students at Johnson High School in Hall County were arrested Monday for bringing a weapon to school.
Edwin Huizar and Jessie Reyes, both 17, were charged with possession of a weapon on school property. Huizar was also charged with marijuana possession.
Hall County Sheriff's Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks said Huizar brought the BB gun to school and was showing it to Reyes when it went off. A BB hit a third student in the head. That student was treated by the school nurse.
Huizar and Reyes have been suspended from school pending a disciplinary meeting, Wilbanks said.
The case is still under investigation by the Hall County Sheriff's Office.
