GIBSONTON, Fla. (AP) - Deputies locked down a high school near Tampa after getting word that students had brought weapons to campus.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said two 15-year-old students had brought handguns to East Bay High School in Gibsonton Tuesday. A search turned up the guns after a school resource deputy heard that at least one student had brought a weapon to sell to another student.

One of the ninth-graders was found with a .25-caliber semiautomatic handgun, and the other had a .38-caliber revolver.

The school remained locked down while deputies searched for other weapons.
