Pre-K Student Brings Gun to Class

PALATKA, Fla. (AP) - A pre-kindergarten student has been suspended from school after authorities say he brought a loaded gun into a north Florida classroom.

Palatka police say they're investigating how the 5-year-old obtained the weapon.

A teacher at Moseley Elementary School was giving a music lesson when the 22-caliber pistol fell out of the child's pocket.

The child told authorities he found the gun in a vehicle belonging to his stepfather.

No injuries were reported.
