Three Students Injured After Cop/Teacher’s Gun Goes Off When He Checks To See If It’s Loaded

A teacher who also serves as a reserve police officer accidentally fired a gun inside a Seaside High School classroom Tuesday, police said, and three students were injured. Dennis Alexander was teaching a course about gun safety for his Administration of Justice class when his gun went off at 1:20 p.m. Alexander was pointing his gun at the ceiling when it fired. Pieces of the ceiling fell to the ground.

A news release from the Seaside Police Department said no one suffered “serious injuries.” One 17-year-old boy suffered moderate injuries when fragments from the bullet ricocheted off the ceiling and lodged into his neck, the student’s father, Fermin Gonzales, told KSBW. The teacher had just told the class that he wanted to make sure his gun wasn’t loaded, when the gun fired, according to Gonzales.

    • Agreed. Another professional with experience and this still happens. I simply cannot see teachers put in this position and if they are there will be more injured or death students / fellow teachers. This is my second post on this in two days. Hugs

  2. And that’s a trained person, imagine when they arm just schoolteachers. The ricochet could easily have killed someone.
