No one was hurt in the episode at Emery Elementary School, at 1720 First St. NE. The gun contained five live rounds, authorities said.
The girl's mother, Maryam Williams, told a school official that she had intended to take the gun to a firing range for practice, according to charging papers filed yesterday. She said the bag containing the gun was in the trunk of her car, along with her daughter's backpack, and that there must have been a mix-up, the papers stated.
