Boy Charged With Bringing Toy Gun on Bus
Police say a 9-year-old elementary school student from Palmer, Mass., will be summoned to juvenile court to face charges for bringing a toy handgun on the school bus, MyFoxBoston.com reports.
Chief Robert Frydryk says the school district has a “zero tolerance policy” regarding weapons. Even though the gun was a toy, it is considered a weapon because it shoots soft plastic projectiles.
The boy told police he forgot he had it in his jacket when he got on the bus on May 5.
