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.
