Charlottesville Police have charged two 13-year-old students for allegedly brandishing a BB gun at Buford Middle School.
The charges stem from an incident following a basketball game against Kate Collins Middle School from Waynesboro.
Several members of the visiting Kate Collins team say they were attacked when they were walking back to their bus after a game. Police say there were also reports that two suspects pointed handguns at the victims.
As a result, police say two teens face a felony charge of brandishing a firearm on school property and a misdemeanor charge of possession of a firearm on school property.
Due to their status as juveniles, the identities of the students will not be released.
