Man Faces Trial After Son Brings Gun to School

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A Johnston man whose 8-year-old son brought a loaded gun to school will face trial in August.
 
Online court records show that Louis Friestad is charged with four counts of neglect and one count of making a gun or ammunition available to a person under 21.
 
Friestad's second-grade son reportedly took the firearm to Johnston's Lawson Elementary on May 7.
 
Students saw the gun and alerted a teacher. Staffers then took the weapon from Friestad's son.
 
Officials say they didn't believe the boy intended to use the gun, but he was suspended from school.
 
Friestad was charged on May 8 and was released from jail on bond.
