An off-duty FBI agent’s decision to take a gun into an elementary school in Nebraska has prompted debate about addressing the state’s gun law, Omaha World-Herald reports.

A parent at a Papillion elementary school spotted the gun and asked the school board to clarify the law on plainclothes officers carrying weapons.

In a murder trial in Douglas County, Nebraska, testimony surfaced that witness Jorge Palacios, a gang member, was paid more than $300,000 over five years from the FBI to help agents investigate drug trafficking, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

The paper reported that Palacios received those payments even though the FBI knew he was a suspected accomplice in an August 2004 shooting of a rival gang member in Los Angeles and that he had been accused — but never charged — in the rape of a 13-year-old girl.
