CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- One day after a middle school student brought a loaded gun on a school bus, another student is in trouble for bringing an unloaded gun to school.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools officials say the Jay M. Robinson Middle School student was showing the gun to students on his school bus.

When the bus arrived at school Tuesday morning, students told administrators and the school resource officer began investigating.

Officials say the gun was not loaded and the student did not have bullets.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are investigating the incident.

Meanwhile, another CMS student has been charged with eight counts of kidnapping and two counts of weapons possession after pulling a gun on a bus driver dropping him off after school.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said the Northeast Middle School student tried to force the driver to take him to a different location Monday afternoon, but the driver talked the student into handing over the gun and the student left the bus.

A second student then told the driver he had a gun that he said was given to him by the first student who wanted his help in the confrontation. The second student did not assist his classmate.

The first boy was arrested Monday afternoon. His name has not been released because of his age.

There were no injuries.
