A second grade student allegedly brought a loaded gun to Venetian Hills Elementary school Friday, local news sites are reporting.
The boy brought the gun to school in his lunch box, according to a report on the Fox-5 Atlanta website.
The gun went off at the school, according to a story in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, but no one was injured, school administrators said.
Atlanta Public Schools spokesman Keith Bromery told Fox-5 that the gun went off in the cafeteria, lodging a bullet in the cafeteria ceiling.
The boy was immediately suspended for three days, Bromery said, and could face expulsion pending the outcome of the investigation.
Atlanta police were called to question the boy and his parents, according to the Fox-5 story. School officials and Atlanta police are looking into the incident, trying to figure out who actually owns the gun.
