NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Two parents are facing charges after their child brought an empty handgun magazine to school.
According to Karen Parker-Chesson with the Norfolk Police Department, a student at Ingleside Elementary School showed his teacher an empty handgun magazine Wednesday. School officials called police around 10:30 a.m.
Parker-Chesson said the teacher took the empty magazine, as well as a book bag, and brought the child to the principal’s office. The principal found a handgun, but did not find any ammunition.
The child told officials he found the gun in his parent’s closet and put it in his book bag, according to Parker-Chesson.
The child’s parents were charged with child neglect, and the student was referred to Juvenile Court Intake. Child Protective Services will follow up with the investigation.
