ATLANTA - A fifth-grader has been suspended from a Douglasville elementary school after an unloaded gun fell out of his backpack.

The incident occurred as students were being dismissed for the day, says Arbor Station Elementary Principal Melissa Joe.

In a mesage on the school's Web site, Joe says several students saw the gun and told the teacher, who confiscated the weapon and took the child to the principal's office.

The incident has been turned over to authorities.
