A four-year-old student came to school with a fully loaded handgun. An off-duty Corpus Christi police officer immediately took possession of the weapon and secured it in a safe place.

"While the district does not believe that students and staff were in any kind of imminent danger, as a precaution the campus had increased police presence and maintained a higher level of security at the school until the Corpus Christi Police Department provided an 'all clear' at 10:30 am," a statement from West Oso ISD said.


The father of the four-year-old, 30-year-old Paul Torres, was arrested and charged with Making Firearm Accessible to Children and was additionally charged with Abandoning or Endangering a Child.
