RICHARDSON -- The Richardson ISD says a six-year-old girl accidentally brought a loaded gun to school on Monday.

It happened at Hamilton Park Elementary.

A teacher reportedly found the gun while searching the girls' backpack for homework.

School officials say it was put there by a family member over the weekend, who then forgot about it. It's not yet clear if the student's parents will face any charges.
