JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A student who brought a BB gun to Chimney Lakes Elementary School was disciplined Thursday, the school's principal told parents in an alert.

The student, who was not named in the alert, showed the gun to other students “in a non-threatening manner,” Principal Melissa Metz said.

Metz said a parent called in a tip that a student might have a prohibited item on campus, and when administrators investigated, they found the BB gun.

The gun was confiscated and the student “was issued discipline according to our Student Code of Conduct.”
