    PITTSBURGH - A loaded gun was brought inside a Pittsburgh elementary school Monday, officials said.

    WPXI-TV reports that the weapon wasn't found until after school, when another student told a bus driver that someone had a gun.

    Children are not required to go through the metal detectors at Pittsburgh Faison Elementary School in Homewood, but a district spokesperson told WPXI that there are going to be changes in security measures starting Tuesday morning.
