Mother: Class continued after teacher fired gun

Seaside teacher, councilman and reserve officer accidentally discharges weapon in gun safety demonstration.

Sandy City Police Chief, Brian Ferrante, told KSBW 8 that Alexander has been "positive and professional" during his time working with the department.

The gun was pointed towards the ceiling when it fired causing pieces of the ceiling to fall on the ground.

The Alexandria Police Department in Virginia meanwhile said it was investigating after an officer accidentally discharging his weapon at George Washington Middle School on Tuesday morning.

A 17-year-old male student sustained a non-life-threatening injury when the gun accidentally went off and he was hit by fragments of a ricocheted bullet.

"It's the craziest thing", Gonzales continued, adding that the teacher was able to use the gun for a demonstration on how to disarm someone when the incident happened.

'He's shaken up, but he's going to be OK, Gonzales said.

Training teachers to handle firearms has become a popular proposal among conservatives seeking alternative solutions to school shooting prevention that do not involve gun control.

Alexander apologized to the students for accidentally injuring them, and he said he did not believe that the gun was loaded when he brought it into the class. Alexander is a reserve police officer for Sand City and a Seaside city councillor.

"We're looking into any violation of city ordinance or the penal code and we'll determine whether or not there are any applicable charges", Pridgen told the Mercury News.

"I think a lot of questions on parents' minds are, why a teacher would be pointing a loaded firearm at the ceiling in front of students", the Monterey Peninsula unified school district superintendent, PK Diffenbaugh, said.

The two incidents came after Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed a new set of gun legislation passed by state lawmakers in the wake of a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. He's very likely not a MAGA fan, either; aside from holding elected office in a very Democratic portion of a very Democratic Monterey County, Alexander's main gig at Seaside High is teaching math in Spanish (the school's student body is 89 percent minority). Counseling will be available to any students who need it, the email said.

Three of these accidental shootings in one month is relatively high, although it's not clear if that's simply the result of increased reporting because Everytown's database is based on local media reports. Gonzales is upset that the school never reported the incident. The station said that Alexander was named the department's reserve officer of the year in 2013.
