MOUNT CARMEL — A 5-year-old Pennsylvania girl who told another girl she was going to shoot her with a pink toy gun that blows soapy bubbles has been suspended from kindergarten.


Her family has hired an attorney to fight the punishment, which initially was 10 days but was reduced to two.


Attorney Robin Ficker says Mount Carmel Area School District officials labeled the girl a terrorist threat for the bubble gun remark, made Jan. 10 as both girls waited for a school bus.


Ficker says the girl didn't even have the bubble gun with her and has never fired a real gun. He says she's the least terroristic person in Pennsylvania.


School district solicitor Edward Greco said officials are looking into the case. He said on Friday school officials aren't at liberty to discuss disciplinary actions.
