LAS VEGAS (AP) - School police say a Las Vegas woman was arrested on child endangerment charges after her son found her gun in his backpack in class and immediately turned it over to his third-grade teacher.

Clark County School District police Sgt. Bryan Zink told the Las Vegas Review-Journal the gun wasn’t loaded, there was no ammunition in the backpack and the boy said he had no idea the weapon was there.

His mother, 36-year-old Iris Guerrero, was arrested at the school where she acknowledged the gun was hers and said she put it in the backpack but forgot to take it out.
