School officials initiated a "soft lockdown," authorities said, and were quickly able to identify the two 16-year-old boys, who both live in Naperville. Officials said they found the gun inside a backpack belonging to one of the boys.

Police said it appears one of the students brought the gun to school to sell to the other. They said there was never a threat of violence and the situation was addressed in less than an hour.

The two students have been referred to DuPage County Juvenile Court Services and released to their parents.
