California: Teacher's Gun Accidently Goes Off in Class Injuring Three Students

A teacher accidentally discharged a firearm while teaching a public safety class, injuring one student at a Northern California school on Tuesday, police said.

According to the official report, the incident occurred at around 1:20 p.m., during a public safety awareness class held by Dennis Alexander, a Seaside High School teacher, city councilman, and a reserve officer. A single shot was sacked from a semi-automatic handgun into the ceiling, according to the Seaside Police Department.

It remains unclear whether Alexander was legally allowed to have a gun on campus since he serves as a reserve police officer for Sand City, and he has been placed on administrative leave during an ongoing investigation, according to Marci McFadden, a spokesperson for the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District.

"I didn't feel anything because it happened so fast, and then I looked at my shirt and there was blood on my shirt".

The oil and gas company reported $0.73 EPS for the quarter, missing analysts' consensus estimates of $1.27 by ($0.54). The Japan-based Mutual Federation Of Agricultural Cooperatives has invested 0.07% in Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX).

"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 - and then hearing that he got hit was just insane", said the student's father, Fermin Gonzales III.

Sand City police Chief Brian Ferrante described the teacher's track record as "positive and professional", however, he wondered why he brought a loaded gun in a classroom full of students.

Alexander was awarded Reserve Office of the Year in 2013 and is also a Seaside City Council member and Red Cross volunteer. "It was determined that there was no immediate threat to students or staff, and school remained in session", the district said in a statement.

One fan tweeted: "I've very excited but very distracted because YOU CAN'T APPARATE ANYWHERE IN THE HOGWARTS GROUNDS". After an introductory picture of the full cast, now the trailer has brought few glimpses from the upcoming film.

UPDATE 5:30pm: MPUSD superintendent PK Diffenbaugh confirms that incident took place during an administration of justice class, a career pathway class that is unique to Seaside High in the school district. Don't even want to read the comments on KSBW TV Action News 8's page because this guy has contributed more to his community than some rando spitting garbage on Facebook.

But some argue this is a prime example of why not to arm educators. And this guy was a trained reserve police officer.

"I have concerns about why he was displaying a loaded firearm in a classroom". He planned to teach his students how to disarm someone and fired the gun at the ceiling to make sure it wasn't loaded... yes, seriously.

"This guy is a cop!" Explain to me how we're supposed to trust all teachers with weapons in the class! He NEVER took his firearm out.
