SALT LAKE CITY – An 11 year old American kid was so shook up by the Newtown massacre he allegedly took a gun to school with him to protect himself in case his school got attacked.
NDJ World | Published: Dec 19 2012 North America
The incident took place at West Kearns Elementary School in Kearns, a suburb of Salt Lake City in Utah. The gun was discovered when 2 other students informed the teacher one kid had a gun.
The teacher acted immediately and checked the child. He then called the school principal who summoned the police and asked the boy’s backpack be removed from the classroom.
Police found an unloaded .22 caliber handgun in the student’s backpack as well as bullets. It’s unknown at this point if the bullets match the gun.
The boy, who more than likely got the weapon from his one of his family members, insists he brought the gun to school to protect himself but other students contest that statement.
According to some students, the student pointed the gun at another student and other students claim he made verbal threats with the gun.
The parents of the 11 year old have been very cooperative in the investigation Utah police stated.
For the student, his future looks uncertain. He has been expelled from school and will more than likely never be allowed to go to a ‘regular’ school.
Police arrested him for weapon’s possession and he will appear in front of a youth judge on Tuesday.
Last Friday’s deadly shooting at Sandy Hook elementary in Newtown that took the lives of 26 people, has set off a slue of elementary school threats across the country.
Just this morning yet another elementary school in Newtown was locked up and children were send home when it received an unspecified threat.
