COCHISE COUNTY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- The Cochise County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a seven-year-old boy reportedly brought two guns to his school on Monday.

In a Facebook post, deputies said they were called to an elementary school after someone reported a second-grade student with a weapon in his backpack. When deputies got there, they found a gun with ammo inside his backpack along with a second handgun. His parents were called, and deputies ultimately referred him to juvenile court, where he will face a count of misconduct with a weapon and one count of a minor in possession of a firearm.

The sheriff’s office did not say what school the boy attended nor where he could have obtained the guns. No other information was immediately released.
