QUEEN CREEK, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — Police are investigating after a fourth-grade student reportedly brought a gun to school Thursday morning in Queen Creek.
Around 8:20 a.m., staff at Legacy Traditional School called police, and when officers arrived, the child had already been moved to a secure area away from other students. School officials say the student never pulled out the gun, which was later found in their backpack.
However, the buildup for the incident started on Wednesday. Another student reportedly noticed something suspicious and told their parents. The parents contacted school staff, who confronted the student on Thursday.
