    Arlington police removed a pellet gun from a school bus Wednesday morning.

    An Arlington Independent School District student brought the gun aboard the bus in the area of 700 East Arbrook in Arlington.

    Arlington police said the driver of the bus saw two students handling what appeared to be a weapon. The driver stopped the bus and talked to the students, who then gave the driver the gun.

    The bus driver continued to Workman Junior High School and let students off the bus. The two students were taken by AISD administrators.

    Police and AISD officials went to the scene to retrieve the fake weapon.

    Police identified the weapon as a "pellet gun or BB gun" and also called it a "toy" in a press release.

    AISD officials say the student will be disciplined according to the student code of conduct.
