Reports that a student brought a gun to Raymer Elementary School today are false, police and Toledo school officials determined.
According to Sgt. Joe Hefferman, spokesman for the Toledo Police Department, a third grader was observed by a neighborhood resident showing a BB gun to a classmate while walking to school.
The resident notified school officials, who contacted police. Police questioned the boy when he arrived at school and later found the empty gun at his aunt's house.
Police and school officials today were scrambling to address reports that one or two students had brought a gun into the elementary school.
No threats were ever made and nobody was ever in danger, police and school officials said.
"The kid did not have a gun," Mr. Heffernan said.
