    Kearns elementary student brings gun to school to protect self, officials say

    KEARNS — School officials have said that a handgun was recovered Monday from West Kearns Elementary school.

    All students are safe and the school was never locked down.

    Granite District Spokesman Ben Horsley said that the student apparently brought the gun to school because of the recent massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Conn. where 26 people were killed, including 20 students.

    The 11-year-old boy wanted to protect himself and his friend in case something like that rampage occurred at his school, officials said.

    It is not clear how he got the gun. The incident is still under investigation.

    Horsley said the school was never locked down due to the quick response of teachers and the Granite Police Department.
