VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Vancouver Police announced late Wednesday night that an 11-year-old boy was arrested after bringing a large cache of weapons to school grounds.

Police said they found more than 400 rounds of ammunition, several knives and a handgun inside the student's backpack early Wednesday morning.

The boy made his first court appearance Thursday in Clark County. His parents attended the hearing and said they wanted to take him home, but he remains in custody on charges of first-degree attempted assault, unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a dangerous weapon on school facilities.

Two Vancouver schools were locked down during the incident.

No one was hurt, and the schools were secured, school officials said. The Evergreen School District sent letters home with students notifying them about the event.

"We got a message on the intercom that said we were in lock down. We were under the table for about an hour and then we could move around," said Zaniah Matthews, a sixth-grader at Frontier Middle School.

Frontier and Pioneer Elementary School were both locked down.

"It's scary, especially hearing about the recent school shootings and stuff. So it's scary to know your kids are in the school and we don't know any information," said Rashida Willard, a concerned parent.

Classes at the two schools went on as planned Thursday.
