The Littlefield Police Department confirmed that a fifth grade student brought an Airsoft gun to school with him on Friday.
One student we talked with who is a fourth grader at the school, told KAMC Investigates the student told his classmates he planned to shoot people with the gun but he didn't have the right bullets. The student we talked with also said the gun-wielding student also threatened to shoot a classmate in the butt.
Both police and school administrators said the gun was confiscated from the student, who has been placed on in school suspension.
Superintendent Jerry Blakely declined to speak with KAMC Investigates on camera Monday night but said administrators did not notify police or parents because the gun brought by the student was 'a piece of junk.'
Police confirmed they only began investigating the incident after they were contacted by a concerned parent who called them Friday night.
