OHIO — A 10-year-old was suspended from school after a teacher said the boy pretended his finger was a gun and pointed it at another student’s head.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, the fifth-grader, Nathan Entingh, said he was just “playing around.”

Nathan, who attends Devonshire Alternative Elementary School, said kids at his school always play around like that.

His father says the three day suspension is too overboard.

District spokesperson Jeff Warner said Principal Patricia Price has warned students about pretend gun play numerous times this year.

Warner said Nathan put his finger to the side of the other student’s head and pretended to shoot “kind of execution style.”

Warnings including three newsletters were sent home with kids, he said.
