Three Dubuque students face misdemeanor charges and have been suspended after police said they brought nonlethal weapons to school Thursday.

Washington Middle School was locked down at about 11 a.m. after a school resource officer and school district officials found an airsoft pistol in a student’s backpack, officials said. Airsoft weapons fire plastic or rubber projectiles using a spring or compressed-air mechanism.
