A Florence second grader said she had to be extra sneaky about turning in a classmate who had a gun.

Amayah Moore says the student opened his backpack and showed it off at Florence Elementary.               

The student claimed it was fully loaded, so Amayah said she waited until the boy left for another class and then ran to the principal to get help.

Moore's mom says she's so proud of her daughter's bravery.

She also tells ABC15 the school never sent a letter home to parents.
