TYLER - Tyler Police are investigating how a saint gregory pre-schooler managed to make it to school with a gun in her back pack
The gun was found after a child father called his daughter's teacher saying he accidentally left the gun in her back pack.
Tyler Police Spokesman Don Martin says, "The teacher did the correct thing in securing the the gun in a safe manner, and and getting it to the school authorities who basically turned it over to us for investigating."
Authorities say, the child's mother was not notified until the child told her Monday afternoon.
Saint Gregory did send a letter home with the kids notifying other parents of what happened.
Police are still investigating the incident
