The two armed suspects who broke into a middle school in Denver overnight are now in custody.
Both male suspects are said to be 15-years-old, and reportedly broke into Noel Middle School around midnight. Denver Police were alerted after two janitors in the school first noticed the break-in.
Police were unsure of the exact firearms they were carrying at the time of the break-in, and SWAT teams were on the scene. The bomb squad was also called in as a precaution as it's believed the suspects were wearing backpacks.
According to Denver Police's Twitter feed, all staff were quickly evacuated and police assured the media that there wasn't anyone in danger inside the school.
Denver Police activated a reverse 9-1-1 and advised those in neighboring areas to remain indoors, but did not issue an evacuation of the area.
After the suspects were arrested, police did a thorough sweep of the school, and found the assault rifles and what they've described as being "more than likely B.B. guns" that the two suspects had stashed inside prior to their arrest. Police have also revealed the suspects ransacked many of the classrooms in the school.
