A 9 year-old boy has been suspended from school and is being charged with 3 counts of assault after he pointed a toy gun at students in front of Knoxville’s East Elementary Friday morning. The child was standing in his yard, across the street from the school as students arrived and was playing with a toy M-16 look alike when students got scared and told Principal Mike Montgomery. Montgomery then called the Knoxville Police Department who evaluated the situation and found that the gun was a toy and not in working order. School officials stress that at no time was anyone in danger.
