Third grader shoots police officer’s gun at school during ‘group activity’ in Minnesota school

Minnesota ABC affiliate KSTP reports that during a group activity at the Harmony Learning Center in Maplewood, Minnesota, a third grade child was able to reach into a police officer’s holster and fire off his gun. Luckily, no one was hurt.

The release says the officer was sitting on a bench, and a third-grader “reached over and placed his finger into the officer’s gun holster and pressed the trigger of the officer’s gun causing it to discharge though the bottom of the holster.”

The round hit the floor, and no one was injured, the press release states.
