A Colorado first-grader was suspended from school after pointing his fingers at a classmate in the shape of a gun.
Elijah, 6, of Colorado Springs, also said, "You're dead" when he made the gesture at Stratton Meadows Elementary School, KRDO reports. He was suspended for one day because the school has a "zero tolerance" policy when it comes to threats.
The boy's father, Austin Thurston, said he thought the punishment was too harsh.
"I know they have zero tolerance, but more of a maybe no recess," Thurston told KRDO.
