Three elementary school students were injured after a loaded pistol, which was brought to the school by a 6-year-old boy, accidentally discharged at Betsy Ross Elementary School in Central Houston, Texas. The children’s injuries were said to be non-life threatening. However, each kid was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital. According to police, it is unclear how the boy obtained the gun or who owns the firearm. The 6-year-old who brought the weapon to school sustained personal injuries to his leg by what officials think was a bullet. The other children, a male and female, both 5-years-old, appeared to have been hit by flying debris or shrapnel. None of the children were identified. The incident happened in the cafeteria, apparently the loaded pistol fell out of the boy’s pocket as he went to sit down.
