Unloaded BB Gun Found With Elementary School Student

An elementary school student is in trouble after an unloaded BB gun was found this morning.

Officials at W. A. Pattillo School got a tip Wednesday after school and this morning the assistant principal apprehended the student as he got off a bus.

Inside the child's backpack they found an unloaded Air Soft BB gun. Administrators say Tarboro police were notified as well as all Pattillo parents.

Police say the boy said he found the BB gun in the woods near his home. The weapon was inoperable and police say they're letting the school handle discipline and won't bring any charges against him.
