6-year old brings gun to school, accidentally discharged

Posted on April 20th, 2011 No Comments

Yesterday, an accidental shooting occurred at Ross Elementary School in the Houston Independent School District.  The accident occurred after a 6-year old boy brought a loaded handgun to the school.  The weapon was discharged when it fell from the boy’s pocket in the school cafeteria.

A bullet grazed two other students, 5 and 6-years old, and the boy who brought the gun.  The students suffered leg wounds but were listed in stable condition at the hospital later that evening.

According to state laws, having a gun within a child’s reach is illegal.  The young boy will most likely not face criminal charges, but his parents or guardians will be investigated.
