VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Virginia Beach police say guns have been found on two school properties, but neither posed a threat to students.
Police say children at Star of the Sea Catholic School discovered a gun Tuesday on school grounds and reported it to a teacher, who called police. The other weapon involved an unloaded shotgun found Tuesday at Kempsville High School.

Investigators believe the gun at Star of the Sea Catholic School had been tossed over a nearby fence and discarded. None of the students touched the weapon.
At Kempsville, a school spokeswoman said a student forgot to remove the hunting equipment from his car. They also found a knife. He faces charges.
