A Dorchester County elementary school student got in trouble for showing a pocket knife to another student Monday.

The 2nd-grader at Spann Elementary brought a pocket knife to school and showed it to another student in the class, District 2 spokeswoman Pat Raynor said.

The incident was reported to a teacher, who took the knife to a school administrator, Raynor said.

It was determined there was no intent to harm anyone, but the school took "appropriate measures," she said.

Standard policy calls for suspending any student who brings a knife to school.
