INTERLAKEN, N.Y. (AP) - The principal at a central New York elementary school has confiscated a loaded gun from a pupil who had it in a coat pocket.

Stephen Zielinski, superintendent at the South Seneca School District, says Tuesday there is no evidence the child planned to use the gun, which was turned over to police. Police determined the students and faculty were never in danger.

Police in Interlaken, 40 miles southwest of Syracuse, are investigating the incident. Police say the child is a first-grader and parents were notified by the school messaging system and the school website.
