FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Police say a third-grader brought a gun to school and showed it off to a classmate in Fort Lauderdale.
The incident happened about 10:45 a.m. Friday at Walker Elementary School and came just two days after a student across town at Dillard High School was killed in a school hallway.
The child allegedly showed a 9mm handgun to a classmate, who then reported it to a teacher. The gun wasn't fired and it's not known if it was loaded.
Police haven't identified the child and no decision has been made whether to charge them with a crime.
