A 6-year-old Ohio boy has been found entering the school on Friday with a handgun, according to police.

Officials were notified by Africentric school's staff that a student seemed to carry a heavy item concealed in his clothes. He was arrested at the entry door and the handgun was recovered by the CPD High School Resource Officer. The boy will not face charges because of his age.

Principal Tyree Pollard urged families to talk with the children about the kind of items that are not allowed at school. "Whether in the neighborhood or at home, young people at every age need to understand the dangers of having a gun, taser, or other type of weapon, even fake ones that look real."
