Tacoma police officers have detained an 11-year-old boy who had a pellet-type gun on the afternoon school bus.

The driver notified Tacoma police about a possible weapon on a Tacoma school bus near South 35th and G streets shortly before 2 p.m., police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.

The student got off the bus and ran into his house, then came back out.

Officers detained the boy and found the gun. No injuries were reported.
