NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Authorities say police were called to a North Little Rock elementary school after a student brought a replica gun to school.

North Little Rock police Sgt. Brian Dedrick says officers were called to Boone Park Elementary School on Wednesday morning after the student was reportedly seen showing the gun to friends. Dedrick says the gun was confiscated after a student told an adult about it.

Dedrick tells the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1NkQL3E ) it was an airsoft gun but it looked realistic.

The North Little Rock School District confirms the airsoft gun was found on campus but says there was never a threat to students or staff.
