MONROE - A kindergartner has been suspended from Swayze Elementary after he brought a gun to school.

Ouachita Parish School Superintendent Bob Webber said the student took the air pistol to his teacher and told her that his mom told him to give it to his brother.

Webber said the teacher was unable to immediately determine whether the gun was an actual handgun.

She delivered the gun to the principal, who called police.

The air pistol was not loaded.

Webber said the district ruled there was no ill intent by the student. He will be allowed to return to school after a parent meets with the administration.
