Fourth-grader caught selling home-made weapons to classmates.

A North Carolina elementary school student accused of making and selling weapons at school has been suspended and is facing charges.

On March 22nd a 4th grade teacher at Morton Elementary School in Onslow County discovered a student was making weapons out of markers and razor blades and other sharp objects.

According to Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown, the student also sold three of the homemade weapons to classmates for $5 each.

Both the school and sheriff's office say there is no evidence these weapons were made to hurt anyone.

"It doesn't necessarily mean we have unsafe schools, but I do think it should put us in a mindset that we should be looking at what our kids our doing and what our kids bring to school and what their talking about," said Assistant Superintendent Dr. Barry Collins.

The Onslow County School District says all four students were suspended for their involvement.

As far as how the young boy knew how to make the weapons, authorities say they don't know.
