9-year-old fires shotgun in Norwegian school yard

NORWEGIAN police say a 9-year-old boy has fired two rounds with a shotgun he brought to his elementary school in the northern town of Harstad without causing injuries.

District Police Chief of Staff Magne Hugo Nilssen says he does not know why the fourth grader brought the gun to school or where he got it.

Nilssen says the shots were fired Friday as pupils gathered for classes in the yard outside the 300-student Kanebogen elementary school.

State radio network NRK says the boy fired when teachers tried to take the gun away from him and that the shots went over the school roof. Police say a teacher then took the gun without further incident.

Police say the boy is being looked after by school officials and public health experts.
