Va. 2nd-Grader Brings Handgun To School

Posted: Updated:

HENRICO, Va. (AP) - Henrico County police say a second-grader brandished a loaded handgun on a school bus bound for a local elementary school.
    
Media outlets report that the 7-year-old boy from Ratcliffe Elementary School made a threatening statement after taking out the gun on Monday morning.
    
School officials say they found the gun in the student's possession and notified police. No one was injured in the incident.
    
The student was released to a guardian and school officials say that there will be a disciplinary review. Police haven't said whether the child will face charges.
    
The incident comes less than a week after school officials held a public forum on school safety and security.
