Columbus news, Ohio news.

An Ohio student has been arrested and questioned by authorities after he brought a loaded semi-automatic gun to school on Tuesday morning.

The incident occurred at Kids Care Elementary in Columbus. The 6-year-old boy who has not been identified told a classmate about the weapon. The classmate then alerted the teacher.

"We really don't know why the kid brought the gun to school except for show-and-tell or bragging or showing off," Detective David Bucy said at a news conference.

The child was reportedly living with his grandparents and his grandfather has reported the gun missing. He was interviewed with a guardian present at the police station. No charges have been filed against him "due to competency and his age."
