Riley/Fox Family MySpace Profile
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (The Weekly Vice) - Patrick Riley, a 7-year-old first grader, was was suspended from school after he was reportedly found to be in possession of a hand gun.... and by hand gun, we mean his hand, with his finger pointed "like" a gun.
According Oklahoma City authorities, a student at Parkview Elementary School made a gun gesture with his fingers and pretended to shoot it at the wall with a classmate while attending a school assembly.
Investigators say the school principal asked the child to go home for the remainder of the day, and told him if he ever did it again his punishment would be more severe.
"Him (Riley) and a little girl were just getting bored at an assembly and doing some target practice at the wall," Fox said.
Fox said she met with the school principal on Tuesday. She said they decided to "agree to disagree” on the matter.
Midwest City-Del City School District officials state that the boy has a history of making this gesture. The child's mother believes that the school has overreacted.
The story comes on the heels of another incident at an Oklahoma City school where a teacher had a student arrested for having possession of a magic marker.
