SHORELINE, Wash. (AP) -- Police have arrested two suspects in the armed robbery of two students Friday morning in Shoreline.

King County sheriff's spokeswoman Katie Larson told KOMO (http://is.gd/1kUGp8 ) one student was from Shorewood High School and the other from nearby Shoreline Community College.

They were walking near the high school when they were confronted by the two men. One was armed with a gun. Backpacks and a school-issued iPad were reportedly stolen.

Responding officers chased down one suspect right away. Shorewood High School was locked down as deputies brought in police dogs and searched for the second suspect. He was caught trying to make his way through a nearby apartment complex.

No students were injured.
