MEAD, Colo. (AP) Weld County authorities say two teens exchanged a handgun at Mead High School but there's no indication they were planning to commit any violence at the school.

Sheriff John B. Cooke said in a statement Tuesday that deputies became aware of the incident Saturday when one of the teen's parents contacted them to say the teen had someone else's firearm.

Bureau chief Steve Reams said investigators believe they had the handgun at the school on Friday but didn't display it. The sheriff's office has recommended that the teens be prosecuted but the final decision will rest with the district attorney's office.
