A preschool student was caught with a loaded handgun inside his backpack in a Georgia school on Wednesday, police said.
The student, who was not identified, was seemingly unaware that the firearm was inside the bag, Marrietta police told The Post.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Any time you involve a child and a gun in the same sentence, it brings a huge level of concern to all of us,” Officer Chuck McPhilamy said early Thursday. “But given the circumstances, I don’t know that we could’ve asked for a better outcome.”
McPhilarmy praised staffers at the Center for Early Education at the First Baptist Church for quickly removing the gun from the child’s possession and calling police for help soon after it was discovered.
The child never reached into the bag to remove the gun, which belonged to the student’s parents, McPhilamy said, adding that no one was hurt.
It’s unclear if the child’s parents will face charges in connection with the incident.
