KING5: Kent 7-year-old brings gun to school
KING 5 News
A 7-year-old student at a Kent elementary school has been expelled after bringing an unloaded gun to school Tuesday.
Kent School District spokesperson Chris Loftis said the Soos Creek Elementary student found the gun at home, thought it was “shiny and cool” and decided to take it to school to show his friends.
When he reached for something in his backpack while at school, the gun fell out. Classmates thought it was a squirt gun and took it to a teacher.
