A kindergartner brought a handgun and ammunition to school

A kindergarten student in Ohio was caught trying to sneak a handgun into school Friday, according to the Columbus Division of Police.

“School staff was advised by a caller that a student was walking in with what appeared to be a heavy object in their pants,” police officials wrote on the department’s Facebook page. “The student was encountered at the entry door and a handgun was quickly recovered from the student.”

Cops included a photo of the weapon along with a clip of live ammunition. The 6-year-old child will not be charged with a crime due to his age, though the investigation “is ongoing.”

Police didn’t identify the student, but named the school as Africentric Early College K-12, which educates students of all ages.

The nearly 500 commenters on the Columbus Police Facebook page called for the gun-toting tot’s parents to be questioned. Others urged patience until cops figure out how the child got the firearm.
