A post on Snapchat gave police their first lead Friday in the eventual arrest of two 17-year-old Cheyenne High School students for bringing a firearm on campus.

There have been about 10 such arrests so far this school year in the Clark County School District.

"We received info that a student was in possession of a gun and a backpack on property," Clark County School District Police Lt. Darnell Couthen told News 3. "We were able to identify them and, unfortunately, when we detained them the backpack and firearm were not on school property."

The two unnamed juveniles face charges of carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a deadly weapon on school property, a minor in possession of a firearm on school property and conspiracy to possess a firearm on school property.

No threats were made to students at the school at North Simmons Street and West Alexander Road in the northwest valley, Couthen said.

The investigation is ongoing.
