UPDATE: Loaded gun taken from Colt Elementary student during PE

POSTED 4-10-2010

MARBLE FALLS — A Colt Elementary School third-grader disarmed after he “flashed” a loaded gun during a physical education class Friday morning must now undergo a psychological test, school officials said.

The gun was never fired, and teachers and other students “did exactly what they were supposed to do” after the gun was discovered, Superintendent Ryder Warren said.
