NEW YORK (AP) - Officials say a Brooklyn elementary school was evacuated after a man with a gun was reported in the building. No students or teachers were injured, and police have arrested the man.
Police say the man was involved in an armed robbery nearby and ran into the school around 1:50 p.m. Wednesday. He was arrested in the school's third-floor bathroom with a loaded weapon.
Students say police told them to stay inside their classrooms, lock the doors and hide under their desks.

I'm glad they arrested this perpetrator before anyone was harmed, but I thought firearms were strictly regulated in New York City. How did he get one?
