A 9-year-old third-grader was arrested Monday after he brought a loaded gun and extra ammo to his Middletown, Ohio, elementary school.

A teacher discovered the gun after noticing a large bulge in his pocket, WLWT reported. The Rosa Parks Elementary School student told school officials he brought the gun because he was being bullied.

"That needs to be addressed. There's a lot of bullying going on," the Rev. Kathryn Davis, grandmother of other Rosa Parks students, told Fox 19.

The school district notified parents of the incident Monday through a robo-call, WLWT reported. A gun safety assembly was held the next day.

Middletown Superintendent Marlon Styles said the situation was handled well.

“The situation was addressed very appropriately by those who were involved in the situation,” he said, WLWT reported. “Students were safe at all times once the weapon was confiscated, and right now it’s in the hands of our law enforcement.”

A classmate’s mother told Fox 19 the boy reportedly tried to stab the teacher with a pair of scissors when she took the gun.

The child is charged with felonious assault, illegal conveyance of a deadly weapon, and carrying a concealed weapon and is being held in juvenile detention at least until his next court appearance next week, WLWT reported. He will be psychologically evaluated while he is there.

His mother’s boyfriend is charged with child endangerment for putting the gun where the child could access it, WLWT reported.

“As a parent, as a grandparent, I’m scared for my grandchild,” Davis said.
