Six-Year-Old Boy Pulls Gun From Backpack and Shoots Teacher

From a Washington Post story by Jim Morrison and Allison Klein headlined “Newport News boy ‘in shock’ after witnessing classmate shoot teacher”:

The shot was so loud, one child told his mother, that he felt like he couldn’t breathe.

The first-grade class at Richneck Elementary School in Newport News was in a small reading group about to go to art when one of their classmates pulled a handgun from his backpack and pointed it at his teacher, according to Brittaney Gregory, whose son was in the class. “She was going to confiscate it, and that’s when he shot,” she said.
