According to Abdul Pridgen, chief of the Seaside Police Department, Alexander was pointing the firearm at the ceiling when he inadvertently fired it.
Though the gun didn't shoot anyone directly, "Fragments from the bullet struck a student in the neck", Pridgen said. The school will have counselors available to students Wednesday.
The weapon was pointed at the ceiling when it was accidentally discharged at Seaside High School in Monterey County, Calif., The Washington Post reported, citing a statement from the school. Alexander was not authorized by the district to have a gun on campus. The parents took the teen to the hospital but were angered that neither school officials nor police notified them of the incident or their son's injuries.

"Due to the nature of this personnel incident, we are unable to share any other details", the letter said. As some of you may know, the teacher is a reserve police officer.
Ferrante said Alexander has been a reserve Sand City police officer for the past 11 years, and described his track record as "positive and professional", according to KSBW.
Ferrante adds that Alexander has been put on administrative leave pending the outcome of his department's investigation, which will determine if any of the department's policies regarding the safe handling of firearms were violated. The man was just to explain the attendees about pistol safety when the weapon went off, the slug hitting the ceiling. Because using anything besides a gun wouldn't have been as effective I guess and the best way to unload a gun is to shoot it in a class full of kids.
Seaside Police say they don't need to be notified when a gun is being used in class, but they told KION bringing a gun into a classroom is unusual.
