     CHESTERFIELD, Va. (AP) - A Chesterfield County man faces charges of bringing a handgun into an elementary school.
     Police tell media outlets that 33-year-old Michael S. Berry was carrying the 9mm handgun in a holster on his side when he walked into A.M. Davis Elementary School last week. Berry went to the school to pick up his daughter and left without incident.
     Berry told investigators that he didn't know carrying a gun onto school property is illegal.
     He is charged with possession of a firearm on school property.
     Virginia law allows citizens to openly carry firearms in most public places. Restrictions include schools and courthouses.
