Deputies say a student at Ippolito Elementary School brought a loaded gun
onto a school bus today.
We're told it was a .22-caliber Derringer, and the bus driver spotted the
student putting it in his pocket.
The driver told authorities, and the sheriff's office had the bus unloaded.
The boy was arrested, the sheriff's office says.
Deputies say they then contacted the boy's parents, and the parents said the
child took the gun from their home without their knowledge.
Right now, detectives say there doesn't seem to be "malicious
intent." They believe he was just showing it off to friends.
