PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — A mother has complained to her son’s Pontiac school after the boy received a toy gun as a gift during a class project.

WXYZ-TV reports that Brieanna Johnson went to Herrington Elementary School to complain about her 6-year-old son bringing home the gun after the school organized businesses to bring children gifts.

Johnson says the principal apologized and had no idea about the toy gun.

Superintendent of Pontiac Schools Kelley Williams says the district will work to improve communication with donors and have employees inspect gifts before they are handed to students.

Johnson says she doesn’t allow her son to play with toy guns after the death of Tamir Rice, a Cleveland boy who was shot by police when they thought his replica gun was real.
