“District administrators are deeply troubled by this incident due to the age of the pupil and what could have taken put if the teacher did not consider correct motion when discovering the handgun,” Burnette stated to Information13 in a statement.
On Wednesday, Burnette claimed a baby went to a classroom with out a backpack and the mother known as a relative to go home and get the bag to provide to the faculty. The relative, Miller, allegedly picked up the incorrect bag and that bag experienced the loaded gun in it.
The teacher uncovered the gun in the bag in the course of snack time and no one — not even the kid whose bag the gun was in — at any time observed the gun or had been alerted to it, Burnette mentioned.
The district encourages parents who have guns to preserve them in a secured location out of access of students.
This is the fourth regarded incident of a student in the General public Universities of Robeson County getting found with a gun in college considering that late August.
