“Accidently”? I do not think it means what you think it means. “Negligently” is almost certainly the correct term here.
SAN ANTONIO — An officer has been placed on administrative leave after school officials say his gun discharged inside a north-side middle school on Wednesday morning.
Northside ISD spokesperson Pascual Gonzalez said the officer was inside his office at Jordan Middle School when the gun accidentally fired around 8:45 a.m.
The office door was closed, Gonzales said, and no students reported hearing the shot.
Immediately after the gun went off, district officials said the officer called his supervisor and the school principal to report the incident.
The bullet reportedly found lodged in a wall inside the office.
District officials said the officer was preparing to leave the building to go to the gun range to work on his recertification.
The officer has worked at Jordan Middle School for five years and has been with the Northside ISD for a total of 16 years.
Best guess? He was fiddlin’ with the gun and had his finger on the trigger for some reason. That’s how guns go off, you see…
