GAINESVILLE, Fla.(WCJB)-- A Kimball Wiles Elementary 5th grader found a gun on his way to school and reported it to the school resource deputy.

The student then took the deputy to the Tower Village subdivision where the gun was lying off the side of the road.

The Alachua County Sheriff's Office is currently cross-referencing the gun to see if it's linked to any crimes.
But they have found it was stolen in 2016.
