A Maryland first-grader has been suspended for pointing his fingers like a gun at school.
The boy, a student at Roscoe Nix Elementary School in Silver Spring, was suspended for one day. The incident happened a week after the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Newtown, Conn.
The family's attorney says the 6-year-old was playing with friends, not making threats.
"Evidently, he was pointing his finger at someone and saying, 'Pow,'" said Robin Ficker, an attorney for the family.
The boy's parents were scheduled to meet with school officials Wednesday.
