An Atlanta third-grader has been suspended for bringing a gun to school. After being alerted by other students, a teacher at Sarah Smith Intermediate School discovered the weapon in the 9-year-old boy’s backpack.
Atlanta Public Schools spokesman Keith Bromery told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the gun was not loaded and was believed to be a BB or air gun.
School officials alerted Atlanta police. The boy is suspended pending the result of a tribunal.
