A New York City third-grader and his father have been arrested after the boy sold a loaded 9mm pistol to a classmate for $3, police said on Friday.

The unidentified boy and his father, Ignacio Galvin, 54, were arrested Thursday in Queens after the buyer’s mother alerted school authorities when he came home from class and showed her the weapon, thinking it was a toy.

Father-son criminal charges include three counts each of criminal possession of a gun. An additional charge of acting in a manner to injure a minor was filed against Galvin, the legal owner of the pistol.
