NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro Nashville Police Department authorities charge two teens with vandalism after they allegedly spraypainted graffiti on the exterior of a school before breaking inside to damage classrooms.

The incident happened during Memorial Day weekend at Valor College Prep charter school.

Police said the teens involved were 13 and 14 years old and attended Antioch Middle School. Staff reported the damage after they returned Tuesday and looked at surveillance footage.
