A Macon area third-grader was suspended from school after he pointed a toy gun at a parent while walking home from school Thursday.

Police haven't identified the boy, who is a student at Ingram-Pye Elementary.

Police say the parent notified authorities who later learned the boy had brought the toy in his backpack.

It's on of several recent incidents in Bibb, Jones and Dublin schools in which students or young adults carried real and toy guns onto campus.

Last week an 18-year-old was arrested and charged for having a toy gun and knife on a Bibb school property.
