Fox61 is reporting that Police were called to a New Haven school after a child made a LEGO gun.
School officials said a child built a toy gun out of Lego at the Jepsen Magnet School in New Haven Thursday.
School administrators called police to the school after the child made the gun and started pointing it at the other kids.
Will Clark, COO of New Haven Public Schools released the following statement:
“School leaders and local police partners were able to investigate and resolve the issue internally with use of restorative practices. Appropriate steps were taken at the school level to insure the safety of all students and to impress upon the students the seriousness of engaging in positive peer interactions while avoiding conduct that may pose risk or concern to others. All children need to feel safe and secure within the learning environment and we all have a role to play to make that happen.”
It is unclear how old the child was but the school has students from ages Kindergarten to Eighth Grade.
