Police collected an airsoft gun as evidence after an aggravated robbery at an elementary school in Provo, Utah on Monday.

Two juveniles were arrested in connection with the incident behind Rock Canyon Elementary School, Provo police said.

It happened at approximately 1:20 p.m. after nearby Centennial Middle School had been dismissed for the day, according to Sgt. Nisha King with Provo Police. King said all three students involved in the incident — the two arrested and the victim — are middle and high school students.

According to Provo police, "the situation was resolved before Rock Canyon School was over for the day."

"No one was injured and there is no ongoing threat," police said.

The two suspects were transported to Slate Canyon Youth Center.
