Reserve officer accidentally fires gun at Calif. school

14 March 2018

Upon learning of the incident, our Human Resources department, school site administration and the Seaside Police Department immediately began investigating the incident, including interviewing students in the class.

One student was hit in the neck by debris or a fragment after the bullet ricocheted off the ceiling, according to Seaside police Chief Abdul D. Pridgen. Alexander has been placed on administrative leave, not only from his teaching job, but also from his gig moonlighting as a reserve police officer with his local police department.

'He's shaken up, but he's going to be OK, Gonzales said. "It could have been very bad". "I just kept saying what on the phone".

The teen was treated at a hospital.

Alexander has taught the course in the past but Pridgen said he did not know if he had ever brought a live firearm to the school before.

"We will be looking into that, ' he said".

Exactly why the teacher was displaying the weapon at all was not entirely clear.

The father told KSBW that the teacher was preparing to use the gun to show how to disarm someone. Dennis Alexander was teaching public safety for his Administration of Justice class in Seaside High School when a shot went off around 1:20 p.m., reports CBS Monterey, California affiliate KION-TV.

Former aide to Gov. Cuomo convicted in bribery case
After jurors deliberated on and off for three weeks, they acquitted Percoco of two counts of extortion and one count of bribery. Defense lawyers had relentlessly attacked Howe's credibility during the trial, saying he was too corrupt to be trusted.

Monterey Peninsula Unified School District Superintendent P.K. Diffenbaugh echoed Ferrante's thoughts. The authorities are unsure whether the victim's neck injury was due to the bullet from Alexander's gun or debris from the ceiling.

"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", Diffenbaugh said.

He adds that, "Clearly, we will revisit this incident to ensure that something like this would never happen again".

Alexander has been placed on administrative leave as the officials look into the incident.

The Social studies teacher also served as play-by-play voice of the school's football team, according to updates the Dalton Police Department was giving the community on its Facebook Page.
