A pistol brought to Ross Elementary School by a 6-year-old kindergarten student fell to the cafeteria floor and discharged today, slightly injuring three children, a Houston school district spokesman said.
The injuries, including one to the boy who brought the pistol to the school, were not considered life-threatening, spokesman Jason Spencer said. The incident occurred about 10:22 a.m in the school at 2819 Bay, he said.
One 6-year-old boy was wounded in the foot, another 6-year-old boy was wounded in the leg and a 5-year-old girl was wounded in the foot, Spencer said.
