Teacher accidentally fires gun in California class, 3 hurt

Seaside High School

Alexander, who is also a reserve police officer, was reportedly making sure the gun wasn't loaded by pointing it at the ceiling as part of a firearms safety demonstration at Seaside High School.

He emphasizes that it was not a bullet, and was "not life threatening". The parents rushed their son to the hospital for an X-ray.

"The statement said the teacher, who was identified as Dennis Alexander, a math and administration of justice teacher, was placed on administrative leave for the duration of the investigation". The Social studies teacher also served as play-by-play voice of the school's football team, according to updates the Dalton Police Department was giving the community on its Facebook Page.

Teachers are not legally allowed to have firearms in California classrooms, even if they have a concealed carry permit, except with explicit authorization, which Alexander did not have, Diffenbaugh said.

A high school teacher made a huge mistake when his gun discharged during a firearm safety lecture.

"Best practice is you don't take live firearms into a classroom", Chief Pridgen told CBS.

Fermin Gonzales, the father of the 17-year-old boy with neck bruising, told local broadcaster KSBW that the teacher had wanted to show the class how to disarm someone and was checking to see if the weapon was loaded.

"He's shaken up, but he's going to be OK", Gonzales told KSBW. It's just so insane that the teacher teaching them about gun safety shoots one off and hits the ceiling.

De Villiers made batting look outrageously easy but he insisted it was anything but, especially when he approached three figures. Rabada took two more wickets, including a crucial late breakthrough to get Usman Khawaja out for 75 seven minutes before stumps.

Alexander had been teaching a room of 16- and 17-year-old students about public safety awareness, police said.

In addition to teaching, Alexander works as a reserve police officer. No wonder! Alexander reportedly apologized to the students, but the school never investigated to make sure the students were all okay.

In conclusion, if some folks are so eager to arm teachers, it's probably best the teacher is well equipped to handle a gun so that a boring calculus class isn't turned into a firing range. President Donald Trump has propagated the idea of arming teachers with guns.

The incident took place in the midst of a national debate about proposals to arm qualified teachers to bolster security at schools following a series of school shootings, including a February 14 attack at a Parkland, Fla., high school that killed 17.
