      ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police are investigating a gun found at a high school that was the scene of a large brawl involving more than a dozen students.

      The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports ( that the fight at The New Schools at Carver happened one day after the gun was found, though they don't believe the gun had anything to do with the brawling.

      Police say a revolver was found in a 16-year-old girl's purse on Tuesday. The gun, which was wrapped in a blue bandanna and a hair bonnet, contained two rounds. She told police she was holding the gun for a fellow student, a boy who police describe as a known gang member.

      Police say about 20 students fought in front of Carver shortly after exiting school buses Wednesday morning.
