ODESSA - In what has nearly become a weekly occurrence, another child showed up in class with a toy gun on Thursday.

It involved a kindergarten student.

Officials with the Ector County ISD say a teacher at Gale Pond-Alamo Elementary school spotted the air soft gun when the child brought it out to show to another student.

It was quickly taken away.

School administrators discovered the gun was broken and say it never posed a threat.

They are once again asking parents to be aware of what their children put in their backpacks each day.
