Elmwood Place student charged after bringing a BB gun to school

ELMWOOD PLACE, OH (FOX19) - An Elmwood Place Elementary School student is charged with inducing panic after police say he brought a BB gun to school.

Elmwood Place Police say the school's principal called them after the boy admitted he had the gun and showed it to five students Monday.

One child told the principal that the boy threatened to shoot him if he told anyone about the gun.

The boy was taken home, and police say the mother showed them that the gun's orange tip had been broken off of it.

No one was hurt.

The boy's name is not being released because of his age.
