Bloomfield Hills — A 9-year-old Eastover Elementary pupil was suspended Tuesday for bringing a loaded firearm to school, officials said.
The pupil, who hasn’t been identified, showed the gun to another pupil on the playground, Bloomfield Township police said in a statement.
The second student then told a teacher, who notified the school office.
After school staff searched the 9-year-old’s locker and book bag, they found the gun “hidden in a pencil bag in the student’s desk,” police said.
The weapon was confiscated and the pupil was suspending pending further investigation.
Police are investigating to determine if any charges will be brought against the parents.
