Although no evidence has yet been found, two Allen Elementary School students say they saw a fellow student carrying a gun. Allen Elementary Principal Anthony Williams called police Wednesday afternoon after learning from one witness that a 10-year-old student had a handgun in his pocket on the bus ride to school Tuesday morning, then placed it into his backpack where it was viewed by another student inside a classroom. Police immediately responded to the school along with the student’s parents and questioned him. They then learned that it may have been an air-soft gun, but school officials are reviewing video surveillance from the bus before moving forward with the case.
No threats were made and the student denied carrying any sort of weapon.
