The Superintendent of the Woodrow Wilson Middle School in Council Bluffs says three boys were cited Thursday for carrying weapons to school. Superintendent Marsha Bruckner said the boys – two 11-year olds and a 12-year old — were cited by Council Bluffs Police and released to their parents.

Bruckener said students at the school were never in any danger, and there was no evidence of intent to commit harm. She said the boys were “Trying to be cool,” but now they’re in “Serious trouble.” The boys are no longer in school, and disciplinary measures are still being investigated.
