MIAMI (WSVN) - Four teens accused bringing a gun to school and causing a high school lockdown faced a judge.

The judge ordered all of the teens were to home detention and to not communicate with each other, Thursday.

According to school board officials, Norland Senior High was placed on lockdown due to police receiving a tip about a gun on campus, Tuesday.

When School Board Police searched the campus, they located a weapon in a red sedan inside of the student parking lot.

The four students were brought in for questioning and were eventually charged with possession of a firearm by a minor and possession of a weapon on school property.

A loaded gun also happened to have been found on campus, back in November of 2016. In that case, four people were also arrested.

With both of these incidents, parents are concerned for their children’s safety.

“It seems like everything is really getting out of hand,” said parent Paula Rolle. “I really don’t know what could be done. Maybe they need to start searching the students as they’re coming into the schools and not let anyone drive.”

“They need to find a better solution to keep the guns out of schools,” said parent Sunsurray Wyn.

“A lot needs to be done at this school,” said grandparent Jackie Williams. “This is the second time someone needs to address this. It needs to stop.”
