(KMOV.com) - There is shock and concern after a student brought a gun to Larimore Elementary school in north St. Louis County Friday.

St. Louis County Police told News 4  a child alerted school officials that a 10-year-old classmate had a pistol in their backpack. A school resource officer was called and found the weapon.

The child apparently never pointed the gun at anyone. No one was harmed. Police tell us they are still looking into this to see where the child got the gun.

It is unclear what the child's intentions were or if there will be any criminal repercussions.

The Hazelwood School District did not return News 4’s calls Friday night.
