Police: Teacher Recovers Loaded Gun From Elementary School Student In Alexandria

The Alexandria Police Department is continuing to investigate after an elementary school student was caught bringing a gun to class on Friday.

Officers were dispatched to the Lyles-Crouch Traditional Academy on March 1 when a teacher overheard the boy willingly admit having the weapon in his backpack.

Police claim the pupil brought the loaded revolver into school in his luggage and freely informed their teacher on Friday that they were armed.

The teacher promptly seized ownership of the student’s backpack, contacted school administration, and police were dispatched to the scene.

According to the police, no other youngsters saw the weapon or were aware of its presence.

During the inquiry, the firearm was secured, and a child’s family member was identified as the gun’s owner and is now collaborating with police.

The Alexandria Police Department continues to have custody of the pistol. School officials have not commented on the student’s prospective discipline.

“Understanding the mere presence of a firearm in a school presents an immediate danger and threat. In addition to working to learn how and why this happened, we are conducting a police investigation,” the agency said.

“We are working closely with ACPS and are in consultation with the Office of the Commonwealth Attorney.”
