Elementary Teacher Accidently Shoots Herself Inside A Utah School

 Westbrook Elementary School

Officials say a Utah elementary school teacher who was carrying a concealed firearm at school accidentally shot herself in the leg when the weapon discharged in a faculty bathroom.

Granite School District spokesman Ben Horsley says the gun went off shortly before class started Thursday at Westbrook Elementary School, in the Salt Lake City suburb of Taylorsville. He says the teacher was severely injured when the bullet entered and exited her leg, and she was rushed to the hospital.

No other faculty or students were in the area.

Officials are still investigating how the gun discharged.

Horsley wouldn’t release details about the woman or what she taught, but he says she was carrying the weapon legally with a concealed firearm permit.

Utah law allows teachers and anyone else licensed to carry concealed weapons to wear a gun in a public school.
