Two Denver teens arrested after police standoff in middle school, armed with BB guns

Denver police arrested two teenage boys Tuesday after they broke into a middle school carrying BB guns that looked like “assault rifles” and refused to leave for several hours.

The two boys, both age 15, carried school bags with long rifles when they broke into  Rachel B. Noel Middle School, Denver Police Chief Robert White told reporters at a press conference early on Tuesday.

Police units, including a SWAT team and bomb squad, located the weapons and bags, which contained items the youths apparently intended to steal, including a computer, Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson told Reuters.

The pair had ransacked several classrooms as the school was empty, Jackson said. Police later confirmed the weapons were BB guns, he said.

When police arrested the boys after several hours of trying to talk them out using the school’s public address system, they were unarmed and bagless, police said.

The boys had earlier smashed a window at a nearby school but had not entered, police said.
