A kindergarten student at Chapman Elementary School brought a gun to school Tuesday.

School officials say a teacher reached into the student's bag to get a book, and found the gun alongside some toys.

Officials say they believe the child thought the gun was a toy and brought it from home.

Chico police responded, but the school was not put on lock down.

School officials told Action News Now no bullets were found in the gun or in the backpack.

Parents were not notified yesterday. Today, however, the school is sending a note home with students to notify parents of the incident.
