Police say a child is facing criminal charges after he brought a BB gun to his elementary school.

The principal at Hope Elementary School in Scituate swiftly confiscated the gun after the 5th grader told a friend about it.

School officials say they did not call parents or place the school on lockdown as there was no immediate threat.

Officials say the  events were not connected to a middle school student who threatened to "shoot up the school" last week.
