East Baton Rouge Sheriff's deputies arrested four students at Park Forest Middle.

Investigators say a 14-year-old, seventh grader, took the gun from a relative. The sheriff's office says the student shot the weapon into the ground during gym class.

Three other students are accused of holding the weapon. Authorities say no threats were made at the school, but they're still investigating.

The four, seventh-grade students face charges for carrying a weapon on school property.
