Loaded gun confiscated from desk of 6-year-old in St. Louis
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Police are investigating after a loaded handgun was found in the desk of a 6-year-old boy at a St. Louis charter school.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a school administrator at KIPP Victory Academy found the .25-caliber pistol Tuesday. The firearm was turned over to police.
Police say the boy's parent or guardian was notified, and a report was made to state officials.
KIPP executive director Kelly Garrett says a letter went out to parents alerting them of what happened. He said no one was injured.
The school teaches students in kindergarten through third grade.
