A spokesperson for a Glendale school district says they're investigating after a student brought a knife and gun to school.

Authorities were called to Orangewood Elementary School on Thursday afternoon after school officials learned that a student had multiple weapons on campus. 

Phoenix police were able to recover the gun and knife after arriving to the school, a district spokesperson confirmed. It was discovered that the sixth-grade student brought the items to show friends. 

No one was injured during the incident and discipline actions are being taken. However, no additional information was released.

The Washington Elementary School District also released the following statement:

The safety of students and staff is of utmost importance to the Washington Elementary School District. At no time are weapons of any kind permitted on a school campus.  We are so thankful to the students who reported the matter to us today. Everyone on campus plays an important role in keeping the school safe.
