BLYTHEVILLE — Authorities say no one was injured when a 9-year-old boy took a handgun to a Blytheville school this week.

Blytheville Police Chief Ross Thompson said the weapon was discovered Wednesday at Blytheville Primary School when the boy tried to hand the gun to another student, who refused to take it.

Other students alerted staff members, who secured the gun until police arrived.

Thompson told the Blytheville Courier News that the boy brought the gun from home but apparently did not intend to harm anyone.

The case was turned over to juvenile authorities in Mississippi County.
