A special meeting was held in Newport News, Virginia on Wednesday by the Newport News Public Schools (NNPS) board to address the shooting of a teacher by a 6-year-old student at the Richneck Elementary School. The board discussed a possible separation agreement and severance for the superintendent, who had been warned three times that the student had a gun.
The shooting occurred on Tuesday morning when the 6-year-old student allegedly took a gun to school and shot a teacher. The teacher was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
According to a lawyer for the teacher, the school had been warned three times that the student had a gun. The school board has yet to comment on the situation.
The school board also discussed the possibility of a separation agreement and severance for the superintendent. It is unclear if the board will come to an agreement, but they are expected to vote on the matter.
The teacher’s lawyer held a press briefing, the full video of which is available online. 13News Now also held a press conference to update the public on the situation.
