Spring ISD officials said they planned to send a letter home to parents after a student was discovered on campus with a toy gun. 

Several parents called Local 2 about the reported incident at Link Elementary School.

According to district leaders, a fifth-grade student put the gun in his backpack and showed it to a friend on campus.  That friend reported it.

School officials said the student did not threaten anyone with the toy gun, but will face disciplinary action.
