FORT DEPOSIT, AL (WSFA) -

The principal at Fort Deposit Elementary School got a surprise Monday after the final bell rang, learning for the first time that a student had brought a pellet gun to school.

The child, whose name has not been released, has since been suspended until an expulsion hearing can be held. That will take approximately 10 days.

Lowndes County Public School Superintendent Dr. Daniel Boyd said the hearing does not necessarily mean the student will be expelled.

Boyd said the child admitted to bringing the pellet gun to school but found no evidence he was going to harm anyone with it.

Boyd didn't know if the pellet gun was loaded.
