    Police are investigating after a child found an inactive bullet near a school playground in South Windsor.

    Police were called to an elementary school in South Windsor on Monday afternoon after a student found an inactive bullet by the playground.

    Police said they responded to the Philip R. Smith, at 949 Avery Street, at 1:43 p.m. after teachers called to report a student who was playing in the grass near the playground found a bullet.

    When police responded, they found what they said was a heavily weathered, inert .22-caliber “short” bullet that appeared to have been on the ground for a long time.

    The school day was not disrupted, according to police.

    No additional information was immediately available.
