IRONDALE, Ala. (AP) - Irondale police say four elementary school students have been suspended for having a pellet gun on a school bus.

Detective Michael Mangina tells Al.com (https://bit.ly/1mdYV2b ) the children were leaving Irondale Community School when a student told the bus driver that a classmate had a gun.

Mangina says the driver returned to school, where the bus was evacuated and police were called. Authorities found the unloaded pellet gun in an 8-year-old boy’s backpack.

Mangina says the boy planned on trading the gun with another student for a computer tablet. Mangina says an orange component indicating the gun didn’t fire real bullets was removed.

Mangina says the student who brought the gun and the student who planned on trading the tablet were suspended, along with two others whose involvement wasn’t immediately clear.
