A Chicago mother claims a student pointed a BB gun at her daughter at a school on the city's South Side.

The incident reportedly happened Monday at Metcalfe Elementary Community Academy on South Normal.

Board of education officials say they learned Tuesday that a student brought a BB gun to school and passed it around to other students before school started.

Some parents say they were not notified of the incident when it happened.

A Chicago Public Schools spokesperson issued a statement saying weapons of any kind are not tolerated on school grounds and school officials notified police.
