On Friday morning at an elementary school in Milledgeville, Georgia a third grader was arrested when a gun allegedly went off in his backpack while he was in his classroom.

The 8-year-old boy attends Lakeview Academy, a private college preparatory school in Baldwin County. He was tardy when arriving on Friday morning, and his classmates were gathered in the front of the classroom reading. He was reportedly looking through his backpack in the rear of the class when a 9-millimeter Smith and Wesson handgun discharged through the bag.

The boy was held in the classroom until the school resource officer arrived, and he was taken into custody prior to being transported to the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office.
