Kindergarten student brings handgun to Longview ISD school

A Longview ISD teacher confiscated a handgun Tuesday afternoon from a kindergarten student at South Ward Elementary School, district officials said.

One Longview ISD resident with two children at South Ward said she was frightened upon finding out about the incident because of the recent shootings in Connecticut.

I thought that was going to happen here, said Maribel Cadenas, who has a kindergartner and a fourth-grader at the school.

A spokesman for the school district said the kindergarten student had the gun in his backpack and was showing it off to other students. He said students who saw the gun told a teacher, who immediately confiscated it.
