Gun fired in US school cafeteria; no one hurt
MEMPHIS, Tennessee (AP) - A gun went off inside a young student's backpack in a United States school cafeteria on Thursday, but no one was hurt, officials said.
The student was a kindergartner, or about five years old. The child was being questioned by police and could be expelled.
A news release from the Shelby County school district said school staffers immediately took control of the backpack.
The statement said there was no evidence of harmful intent. The gun fired as students were waiting for the opening bell.
