A first-grader was suspended from a Colorado elementary school for making a gun gesture with his hands during class Monday.

Stratton Meadows Elementary School suspended six-year-old Elijah for one day after making the gesture and saying, “You’re dead,” KRDO-TV reported.

His parents were not happy about the punishment issued by the school.

“I know they have zero tolerance, but more of a maybe no recess,” Elijah’s dad Austin Thurston told KRDO. “Going as far as a one-day suspension is a little extreme for a six-year-old in a first-grade class.”
