COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) –  News Leader 9 has learned a Muscogee County elementary school student was arrested for bringing an unloaded 9-milimeter gun to school.

We're told the 10-year-old St. Mary's Elementary student was arrested by a school resource officer after another student told a teacher.

Parents received a Connect-Ed message notifying them of the incident. News Leader 9 has obtained a copy of that message.

The Columbus Police Department is assisting with this investigation.

Officials tell us the student will be charged and face Muscogee County Schools tribunal. It is the school district's policy to suspend a student for bringing a weapon to school.
