Student Fires Rifle From Police Officer's Motorcycle During Safety Presentation
It turns out when a reported police officer's gun misfired during a safety presentation yesterday, it wasn't him that did it—it was a student. Also, it wasn't just any gun, but rather an AR-15 rifle.
Three students at Newman Elementary School in Chino were injured while police officers gave a Red Ribbon Week presentation to students on drug-use prevention. One officer's motorcycle was unattended when a student pulled the trigger on the rifle that was mounted to it. It shot to the ground and the students suffered minor injuries; they were most likely hurt from debris from the gunshot, not the actual bullet itself, reported CBS Los Angeles.
“We're still sorting out the extent of the injuries and how it happened,” said Tamrin Olden, a spokeswoman for the Chino Police Department, according to The Los Angeles Times.
Let's just hope the school's next safety presentation... will be a little more safe.
