Peoria PD: Six-year-old student takes gun to school for show and tell

PEORIA, AZ - Authorities say a six-year-old student brought a loaded gun to Oasis Elementary School, near 79th Avenue and Cactus Road in Peoria for show and tell Wednesday.

The student never showed the gun or made any threats with the weapon, said Amanda Jacinto, a Peoria Police spokeswoman.

The gun was in the students backpack and it never left his backpack, Jacinto said.

The parents were unaware the student took the weapon, she said. There are no criminal charges pending and the school is handling the incident administratively.
