A New Orleans elementary school is under fire after a 6-year-old student was handcuffed by an armed security guard on campus. Ja'Brieil Weston, a first grader at Sarah T. Reed School, was handcuffed after getting into a fight in the lunchroom. His parents say Ja'Briel's feet were also cuffed.

The school district issued a statement stating they are investigating the incident.

The family said Ja-Briel was suspended after his father complained at a meeting last Friday.
