Posted: Updated:

Washoe County School District Police were called to Peavine Elementary School after being told a 6-year-old student threatened to shoot another student Wednesday morning.

Later Wednesday afternoon that same student was seen pulling a BB gun out of his backpack. The BB gun turned out to be inoperable.

There was no lockdown of any kind and the student was released to his parents and the school will be handling discipline for the incident.

Under Nevada law a student under the age of 8 CANNOT be charged with any sort of crime.
