An Ohio school bus driver called police after taking a pair of silver Western-style cap guns from a first-grader aboard the bus, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.

The boy pointed one of the guns into the chest of another child and threatened to shoot during Tuesday morning's ride, Capt. Kenneth Ray of Springfield Township police said, adding that the toy gun contained no caps.

Some students became alarmed and altered the bus driver, police said. While no children were injured, some students were “shaken up due to the event,” police told the Beacon Journal.

Officers took the cap guns and turned the boy over to his parents, police said, adding that no charges were expected because of the child’s age.

“He’s only 6, so I don’t know if he had any idea how serious it was,” Ray told the Beacon Journal, adding it appears to be a case of aggressive horseplay.

Following the boy's removal from the bus, the other students were taken to school and their parents were notified, the Beacon Journal reported.
