1st Grader Brings Gun To School

KSAL StaffDecember 16, 2014

The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office says a first-grade student brought a loaded handgun to school but didn’t display it or make any threats.

Sheriff’s Maj. Phil Blume says that the pupil “self-reported” having the gun on Monday at Indian Hills Elementary School in Topeka.

Blume says the gun was “rendered safe” by an officer at the scene. He says the weapon was loaded but there were no rounds in the chamber.

A news release from the Sheriff’s Office says the child brought the gun from home.

Indian Hills Principal Jim McDaniel sent an email to parents advising of the weapon, though school officials declined to say what kind of weapon was found.

The email says the weapon was never taken out of the student’s backpack.
