No one was injured in the discovery at a school in Harrison Township in suburban Dayton Tuesday.
The Dayton Daily News reports the student found the loaded gun when opening the bag to take out his homework.
A Montgomery County Sheriff's Office report said the child told his teacher, "Oh, no my dad left his gun in my bag."
The report says the boy's father has a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The boy was allowed to stay in school but won't be in class as the district, Northridge Schools, investigates.
