There's some backlash after a young boy in Ohio is punished by his school for pointing his finger like a gun in the direction of a fellow student.

FOX News Radio's Lilian Woo explains:

A principal at a central Ohio school suspending a 10 year-old for three days for pretending his finger was a gun and pointing it at another student's head-- in a way the school district called 'kind of execution style'.

But the boy's father says it's adults who are behaving childishly. The 5th grader at the Devonshire Alternative Elementary-- who'd never been in trouble before, says he was just playing around. But, the school district telling the Columbus Dispatch-- the principal had repeatedly warned students about pretend gun play numerous times this year.

Many schools around the country have adopted zero-tolerance policies following school shootings.
