(Memphis) A gun was found on the campus of yet another Mid-South school.

Police said two suspects went to Frayser High School to pick up three girls.

When the 21-year-old men got back to drop them off, police checked their car, looked under their seat, and found a gun.

Brandon Guy and Derrick Hemphill picked up the three students and drove away, according to police.

Shelby County School officers were waiting for the men when they got back to the school.

"My son, by the time I got up here, was handcuffed with a friend of his in a police car," Lisa Collins, Brandon Guy's mother, said.

WREG spoke to Collins outside of the school on Thursday.

Lisa Collins said her son did not know there was a gun in the car.

"He wasn't supposed to have a gun and I'm sure he wouldn't have given them permission to search the car had he known a gun had been in his car," Collins said.

However, officers didn't need permission because signs at the parking lot's entrance make it clear.

Cars parked on school property by students or visitors can be searched for drugs or dangerous weapons.

"It is a big deal because had I been another parent I would have been the first one concerned," Collins said.

People who live in the area said they are very concerned following this incident.

"Chill out, keep them guns away from the school, keep the guns out the kids hands," Brandon Mitchell, who lives in neighborhood, said.

"Everybody did what they were supposed to do except for him who had the gun -- whether he knew it or not," Collins concluded.

Both suspects are being held on a $10,000 bond.

    They should have asked the mother why was her son on school campus to begin with since he’s not a student there??

    Another misinformed mother; “my son is a saint,” he had the gun in the car to fight off the devil. Doesn’t she know he shouldn’t be on school property with or without the gun.
