3 students injured when California high school teacher fires gun by accident during 'safety course'
March 14, 2018

(NATIONAL) -- So having guns in schools will make kids safer as the NRA claims? Arming teachers will make them safer?

Police say three students at a central California high school were injured Tuesday when a teacher "fired a gun inside of a classroom during a firearms safety course."

Local news reports said teacher Dennis Alexander discharged a semiautomatic handgun, evidently by accident, as it was pointed at the ceiling.

Seaside Police Chief Abdul Pridgen said the three teens at Seaside High School in Monterey County were hurt by debris falling from the ceiling.

NBC News reported that one of the parents of an injured 17-year-old told NBC affiliate KSBW that the teacher had told the class that he was going to use the gun for a demonstration about how to disarm someone and was checking if the weapon was loaded.

That parent, Fermin Gonzales told KSBW, "It's the craziest thing." He said he only learned of his son's injury when the boy came home from school. "It could have been very bad," he added.

The school district said the injuries happened during Alexander's administration of justice course. Alexander is a reserve police officer for the Sand City Police Department and a Seaside councilman, according to KSBW.

The school district said the teacher has been placed on administrative leave during an investigation. The Sand City Police Department said it also placed him on administrative leave. NBC News said Alexander could not immediately be reached for comment Wednesday.
