RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Washoe County School District Police Chief Mike Mieras has confirmed a Kindergarten student attending Peavine Elementary brought an inoperable BB gun pistol to school yesterday.
The 6-year-old boy made a verbal threat to another child, but did not use the BB gun in a threatening manner. The gun appears to have been brought from home, along with several other toys. No criminal charges have been filed and the matter is still under investigation.
The incident will be handled by the school administration, but Chief Mieras asks parents to be aware of what their children are bringing to school and asks the public to notify authorities immediately if a similar matter occurs.
