Police say a 12-year-old boy robbed an 11-year-old classmate in a bathroom inside a Chicago elementary school using a replica of a handgun on Friday afternoon.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the boy was in police custody Friday in the robbery, which took place around 2:40 p.m. at Palmer Elementary School, 5051 N. Kenneth Ave.

Police learned of the incident after the 11-year-old who was reportedly robbed confronted the suspect to get his $5 back, a scuffle during which ammunition fell from the suspect's backpack, CBS Chicago reports.

According to the Tribune, the BB gun was plastic, but also had a magazine and slide that could take live ammunition.

Nobody was hurt in the incident and, as of Saturday morning, no charges were filed against the suspect, according to ABC Chicago.
