Ten Year-Old Brings Loaded Gun to School

Posted: Updated:


THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - A 10-year-old boy is in custody after he allegedly brought a loaded handgun to an elementary school in Thibodaux.
 
Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre says administrators at Thibodaux Elementary School learned Wednesday that a student was in possession of a .380 caliber automatic pistol. A School Resource Officer confiscated the weapon after it was found in the child's school bag.
 
Investigators say the child brought the gun, which is owned by the child's stepfather, to school to show to his friends. Detectives do not suspect the child had any intention of firing the weapon or hurting anyone.
 
The student is being held at the Juvenile Justice Facility, pending a Thursday hearing in Thibodaux City Court. His name has not been released due to his age.
