8-year-old brings gun to Baltimore school
An 8-year-old elementary school student was arrested after he threatened a classmate and police at his Baltimore school found a loaded handgun in his backpack.
Authorities arrested the third-grader at Sharp-Leadenhall Elementary School on Thursday. The small Baltimore school is for special-needs children. It does not have metal detectors. School officials say the boy was “acting suspiciously,” which led to the search of his backpack.
The boy was charged as a juvenile with handgun possession.
Police are now trying to find the gun's owner and could consider charges against adults who may have allowed him to obtain the gun.
