INKSTER, Mich. — Authorities say a third-grade student brought a loaded handgun to his Detroit-area school but was stopped before he walked through the doors.

School district spokeswoman Val Hughes says the principal at Daly Elementary School in Inkster was tipped by a phone call before school started on Friday morning.

She says the principal met the boy at the school's entrance. The boy and weapon were removed from school grounds around 9 a.m.

Hughes says no one was harmed.
