ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- A student at Gibson Elementary in the Riverview Gardens School District brought a loaded handgun to school Monday, officials say.

Police took the gun and the student into custody. The student was turned over to juvenile authorities.
Superintendent Clive Coleman wants to know how the child got the gun in the first place. He says it speaks to a bigger problem community-wide.
No word on the age or sex of the student.
A letter was sent home to parents.
