CREVE COEUR, Mo. (AP) — Authorities in two areas of St. Louis County are investigating after students were caught with loaded guns at two different schools.

KMOV-TV ( ) reports that a student at the private Whitfield School in Creve Coeur took a loaded pistol to class Tuesday, concealed in a backpack. Another student told school staff members, who took the gun until police arrived.
