The kindergarten of Ohio, 6, runs to school with a rifle and bullets in his pants
- A six-year-old boy walked into his Ohio school on Friday with his pistol and bullets
- Officials at Columbus Africentric Early College received a phone call saying that there was a heavy object in the pants of the students
- The gun was quickly found at the entrance – the boy will not be burdened because of his age
A handgun was confiscated by a kindergartner in Ohio who went to school after someone had reported that the six-year-old boy seemed to have a heavy object in his pants.
Columbus police have not disclosed whether the gun was loaded on Friday when it was safely taken from a student at the Columbus Africentric Early College.
A photo shared by the police showed bullets with the seized firearm.
& # 39; The school staff was advised by a caller that a student walked in with what appeared to be a heavy object in their pants, & # 39; said the police.
& # 39; The student was found at the entrance door and a gun was quickly recovered from the student. & # 39;
The police say the boy will not be charged because he is so young. They examine where he has the weapon.
A nursery class student came to his Ohio school on Friday with this gun and bullets
The boy brought the weapon to his school, the Columbus Africentric Early College, which goes through the 12th grade
WBNS-TV reports that a director in a letter to parents has said that the student will experience the right discipline & # 39; but has not indicated what that would be.
Principal Tyree Pollard reiterated Columbus' zero tolerance policy on arms and urged families to talk with children about keeping such items out of school.
The consequences of having a weapon outside the school can be even more extreme. Whether in the neighborhood or at home, young people at any age should understand the dangers of a gun, taser, or other type of weapon – even fake ones that really look, "Pollard wrote, according to WBNS-TV.
We need families who have thoughtful, age-appropriate conversations about the types of items that are never suitable for schooling. & # 39;
