Police held two men on suspicion of possessing handguns outside Leroy Nichols Elementary School on Wednesday night.

According to Lodi police Sgt. Mike Kermgard, an anonymous caller told police at around 8 p.m. that six people where loitering in front of Nichols Elementary, and the caller thought one might have a gun.

Officers responding to the scene say they found handguns in the possession of two of the men, who were arrested. A third person was arrested on an outstanding warrant, cited and released, Kermgard said. A juvenile suspected of carrying a switchblade was also arrested, cited and released, Kermgard said.

The suspects’ names were not immediately released.

Investigation into the incident is ongoing, and police are looking into whether the suspects have connections to a gang.
