A boy took a 9MM pistol, similar to the Glock pictured above, to school and sold it to a friend.
AN 8-year-old boy toted a loaded 9-mm. handgun to a Queens school Thursday and sold it to a classmate for $3, cops said.

The third-grader who made the purchase at Public School 107 Thomas Dooley took the pistol home for show and tell with his mother after class was over, police said.

The woman stormed into the Flushing school and told officials, police said. An administrator then called cops and reported the classroom gun deal, cops said.

The boy who sold the gun and his father, Ignacio Galvin, 54, were later arrested on three counts of criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

Galvin, who is the registered owner of the handgun, was also charged for acting in a manner to injure a minor.

He was still in custody Thursday night.
The case will be handled through family court, officials said.
There was no answer at the family's home.
