Teacher accidentally fires gun in classroom, students injured

Dennis Alexander accidentally fired a pistol while discussing public safety in a Seaside High School classroom according to police

Seaside Police were called to Seaside High School on Tuesday afternoon after a report that a teacher accidentally fired a hand gun in a classroom full of students.

However, Marci McFadden, chief of communication and engagement with the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District, said Monterey school district's policy does make an exception for school resource officers when it comes to carrying guns and other weapons on campus. Pridgen said class resumed after the incident was brought under control.

The teacher was identified as Dennis Alexander, a reserve police officer for Sand City, according to a press release from the Seaside Police Department.

Gonzales claimed Alexander told his class he wanted to be sure that his gun wasn't loaded.

Dennis Alexander, who is Seaside City's mayor pro tem and a reserve officer with the Sand City Police Department, was teaching a lesson at Seaside High School in Seaside, California when he pointed his gun into the ceiling and accidentally fired it, said Abdul Pridgen, the city's police chief.

"It's the craziest thing".

The student's father Fermin Gonzales said he understands that it was an accident but said that "somebody could have died".

The student injured during the California teacher's lecture has been released from the emergency room a couple of hours later. He says his department will do an administrative investigation of the incident once Seaside PD completes its investigation.

"Upon learning of the incident, school site administration, the District Office, and the Seaside Police Department immediately began investigating, including interviewing students in the class".

"We will be looking into that, ' he said".

The school district sent out a letter to parents saying the students are all expected to be OK and that the teacher is facing disciplinary action.

Alexander had been a reserve Sand City police officer for 11 years.

He adds that, "Clearly, we will revisit this incident to ensure that something like this would never happen again".

The incident occurred amid nation-wide debate on whether teachers should be allowed to carry firearms for the better protection of students, in the wake of Florida School shooting last month. Among the proposals advanced is training and arming teachers, an approach favored by President Trump, among others but opposed by a majority of the teachers in the National Education Association, including many who said in an NEA survey that it would make them feel less safe.
