A 12-year-old elementary school student in Chicago has been suspended after he was caught with a loaded gun on school property.
The suspension, while the boy received Thursday, came one day after a group of Sauk Elementary School students reported seeing the youth with a gun on the school bus, according to district Superintendent Blondean Davis. Although the boy denied having a weapon, the school’s principal discovered he was packing when she made him empty his pockets, Davis says. While the boy was escorted from school property by Richton Park police officers, it’s unclear whether he or his parents will face legal ramifications.
The unidentified youth is expected to return to class following his 10-day suspension.
