Kindergartner Brings BB Gun To Reno School

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Washoe County school district officials are investigating after a kindergartner brought a BB gun to a Reno elementary school.

School district spokeswoman Victoria Campbell says the BB gun pistol turned out to be inoperable.

District Police Chief Mike Mieras says the 6-year-old boy made a verbal threat to another child at Peavine Elementary on Wednesday but did not use the BB gun in a threatening manner.

The boy was released to his parents. Mieras says school administrators will review the case but no charges have been filed.
