Police say the kid took the gun from his grandfather. Thankfully, the kid he shared it with said something.
An Ohio elementary school student may have thwarted a potential crisis on Wednesday by quickly reporting a first-grader who came to school with a loaded semi-automatic handgun in his backpack, according to police.
“That student did exactly what we ask students to do: see something, say something,” Columbus Division of Police Detective David Bucy told reporters Wednesday. “I think it’s very obvious this could have been the worst day that that school could have ever experienced.”
Staff members at Kids Care Elementary School in Columbus, Ohio, made the alarming discovery at around 9 a.m. when the 6-year-old boy revealed the gun to a classmate. School administrators secured the gun immediately and placed the school on lockdown.ABC:
