Kennewick boy expelled for YouTube gun video

The Associated Press

KENNEWICK, Tri-Cities – A 10-year-old Kennewick boy was expelled from Ridge View Elementary School after administrators saw a YouTube video in which he displays several guns.

KVEW reports the three-minute video uploaded Saturday shows the boy by himself in a room. He picks up three guns, one at a time, and holds them in front of the camera for several seconds. He holds one gun as if he is going to shoot.

The student did not make any threats to his school or any students. Lorraine Cooper of the Kennewick School District says he was expelled as a safety precaution during a police investigation.
