Two Janesville- Waldorf- Pemberton high school students are suspended and may face expulsion after bringing Airsoft guns on to school grounds and shooting at other students.The Janesville Police were called Monday morning, after someone reported the students standing in front of the school pointing a rifle at passers- by.

Police Chief David Ulmen says it was a scary moment when police recovered the gun because it is a close replica to the assault rifle he carries on duty.David Ulmen says It's the idea of bringing something like this to school, taking it out of the car, and shooting these Airsoft pellets at other people.

We have to treat these calls as serious, genuine calls."No one was hurt in the incident and no charges have been filed yet pending an investigation. Tonight on the FOX Mankato News at Nine and on News 12 at 10, we'll hear more from Chief Ulmen on why these students are fortunate they weren't hurt in the incident.
