Fukuoka police have arrested a 41-year-old man after his son brought a revolver to his junior high school in the town of Shime in the prefecture, investigative sources said Monday.

One of the teachers at the municipal school accidentally fired the handgun in the teachers’ office thinking it was fake, but nobody was injured, they said.
