MOUNT CARMEL, Pa. —

A 5-year-old kindergartner is headed back to class in central Pennsylvania after being suspended for comments she made to another girl about a pink toy gun that blows soapy bubbles

Officials say the girl, whose name has not been released, told one of her classmates in the Mount Carmel Area School District she was going to shoot her with a Hello Kitty pink bubble gun machine earlier this month. She was later suspended 10 days, but the discipline was reduced to two.

The Patriot-News reports ( http://bit.ly/XUtwTK) Robin Ficker, an attorney representing the family, says the girl will return to class at Mount Carmel Elementary School on Thursday.

Ficker has said the girl didn't even have the bubble gun with her and has never fired a real gun.
