Two eighth-grade boys were arrested Wednesday morning in Massachusetts after they were allegedly found carrying an airsoft pellet gun.

WHDH reported that there was a strong police presence at Bellingham High School.

Administrators were notified, and the gun was confiscated.

School officials said one boy offered to give the gun to a new classmate in the cafeteria.

The Bellingham school resource officer said the pellet gun looks just like the weapon he carries.

The case is headed to court Thursday morning.
