The problems with Guns in the US are not looking to stop. In the latest incident, three students were injured in a school when a teacher fired a gun inside a classroom during a firearms safety course in California on Tuesday.
Fermin Gonzales, parent of an injured student told the media that the teacher was going to use the gun for a demonstration about how to disarm someone and was checking if the weapon was loaded.
“It’s a craziest thing. It could have been very bad,” added Gonzales.
A picture obtained by the local media showed a student with small red bruising to his neck, which Gonzales said appeared to be caused by a bullet fragment. Others were struck by falling debris from the ceiling.
The teacher Alexander has been put on leave from both his position as a teacher and a reserve officer.
The shooting comes in the wake of last month’s massacre in Florida that left 17 students and school staffs dead.
The US president Donald Trump this week had told that it plans to tighten gun law in the United States.
Carrying a concealed weapon in a school or college has been banned in California since 2015. Officials were checking if the teacher violated any law by bringing his handgun into the classroom.
The incident happened during Alexander’s administration of justice course, said the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District.
The school district said ‘safety of students’ is the top priority and the teacher has been placed on administrative leave during an investigation.
