A teacher accidentally discharged a firearm while teaching a public safety class at a Northern California school on Tuesday, according to police.
One student was killed and a second was injured Wednesday afternoon in what was called an accidental shooting at Huffman High School in Birmingham, Alabama, authorities said.
The suspected shooter is still at large, and is considered to be armed and dangerous.
The goal of the school marshal program is to have 10 “marshals,” or teachers trained to carry a gun, in every school, a total of 37,000 statewide.
This ill-advised idea of arming teachers could lead to more shootings with innocent people being caught in the crossfire
The post, which as been shared over 1.3 million times, is a photo of a rubber door stop and a story of an aunt urging her nieces to keep it in their backpacks.
Video from the school's surveillance system has helped police put together a timeline of events on the day of the shooting.
The 19-year-old shooter is now in custody.
