Boy Brings Unloaded Gun To Day Care After Finding It In His Apartment Complex

MSNBC.COM - Police say a 5-year-old boy in Ohio brought an unloaded handgun to the day care he attends after finding it in the grass at his apartment complex.

Police say the child thought it was a cigarette lighter and was showing it to friends at My First Days Day Care in Toledo when administrators saw the weapon.

"We thought it was a toy, and on further investigation, we noticed it wasn't a toy and we called his parents," said Montarey Barbour, the day care's administrator. She said once the boy realized the gun wasn't a toy, "he was pretty upset about the situation."

The Blade newspaper reports Wednesday that about 20 children were at the day care at the time.

Day care administrator Montarey Barbour says employees checked the gun to make sure it was not loaded, then called police.

Police say the boy told his mother about the gun, and while she failed to check it closely, no charges are likely.
