A loaded gun was brought inside a Pittsburgh elementary school Monday, officials said.
WPXI-TV reports that the weapon wasn't found until after school, when another student told a bus driver that someone had a gun.
Children are not required to go through the metal detectors at Pittsburgh Faison Elementary School in Homewood, but a district spokesperson told WPXI that there are going to be changes in security measures starting Tuesday morning.
The kindergarten student had the loaded gun, with the safety on, in his backpack, inside his locker.
Officials told WPXI that parents got a notice from the district's phone system.
WPXI is working to find out if the child's parents will be charged.
