(ABC 6 News) - The Swift County Sheriff's Department is reporting, on its Facebook page, that a kindergarten student brought a real gun to the Northside Elementary School in Benson, Minnesota.

The Facebook post says other students became aware of the gun around 8 o'clock this morning and immediately notified a teacher. The firearm was immediately seized and taken control of by staff and no children were harmed.

It is not known whether the gun was loaded.

The Benson Public School system says it takes the incident very seriously. The school system is reportedly notifying parents and says its crisis plan was followed and all proper authorities were alerted.
