PASCO, Wash. —

The Pasco School District decided to overturn the suspension of a first-grader who was sent home for taking about toy guns.

The district determined no discipline was warranted after talking with the parents.

The father, Mike Aguirre, told the Tri-City Herald ( http://bit.ly/ZijagY) his son Noah was punished for talking about Nerf guns and there's no evidence he threatened to harm another student.

The 6-year-old was suspended Feb. 28 at James McGee Elementary School. The district said Wednesday the incident will be erased from his record.
