Preschooler Brings Gun to School
Yesterday morning, a five-year-old boy took a gun to school in West Bay, Florida. Although the gun was not loaded, authorities are still worried and the boy’s mother is under investigation.
According to a local news station, WKMG, the boy found the gun on the floor in the back of his mother’s car, and put the weapon in his backpack to show his friends later. The child’s mother reports that she did not know the gun was in her car.
“There doesn’t appear to be any criminal intent in this situation, however, the potential for harm was certainly great,” said Palm Bay Detective Joe Meyers. “There are questions here that need to be answered and we will work with the state attorney’s office to determine what if any criminal charges may apply.” Florida Department of Children and Family Services will also be investigating the preschooler’s home life.
