CHINO (CBSLA.com) Three students were injured Wednesday after a weapon accidentally discharged during a safety presentation at an elementary school in Chino.
The incident took place at 11:40 a.m. at Newman Elementary School, which is located at 4150 Walnut Ave.
The Chino Police Department was giving a safety presentation for Red Ribbon Week when a firearm accidentally was discharged, police said.
No one suffered gunshot wounds but two students were transported to local hospitals with minor lacerations. A third student was assessed and released to his parents, according to officials.
No other details were immediately released.
This school is just over 3 miles from my house.
Is YOUTUBE DEA Glock guy back on the job?
I’m just shaking my head. This must give you lots of confidence in your local police force. I’ve lost a lot confidence in my local police force this past year, also.
This lack of confidence in police is what makes oppose the stop and frisk law in NYC. When you think about what we saw in that video of the motorcycle gang terrorizing the Asian family in the SUV, you know that the NYC police cannot be trusted with such power as the stop and frisk.
First mention: ...a weapon accidentally discharged...
Finally, on the third try: ...a firearm accidentally was discharged...
So, let me guess: the gun, of its own accord decided to load at least one round into the chamber. Then, the gun was just settin' there behaving and playing with itself and then "accidentally discharged."
Of course, there was no human involvement whatsoever.
This reminds me that I need to have a good talk with all of my guns, so the same thing doesn' happen to them.
Good thing Chino Hospital is across the street just a little bit further to the west.
Yes, just like those EVIL SUV’s that cause all those accidents.
One guy on here was talking about his guns down in the basement shooting themselves and raising hell. He had to go down there and take their ammunition away from them.
Only police officers can be trusted with firearms. /s
When I heard this story the first thought I had was, thank God the gun was in the hands of a “professional”! And then I was impressed that more children weren’t injured by the “professional”.
More info. According to anothe student, one student got access to a gun, pointed it to the ground and pulled the trigger. I guess there are a few red flags here. Why were the officers not watching it, let alone having a loaded gun near where a student could get to it?
Safety presentation huh? I am not saying this is one of those times, but I am so cynical of government, that I think sometimes these things are staged, to further gun control.
Is the USA losing its institutional memory, its basic competencies, or not?
Can’t win a war decisively since WWII?
Can’t do a school firearm safety demo without the gun going off?
Can’t implement computer systems?
Can’t pass a balanced budget?
This still works with my “professional” comment. The children should never had access to the gun and should not have been loaded. I bet this “professional” gets no more than a paid vacation and a written reprimand. If this happened in your home with your child and your gun you would be arrested, charged with child endangerment,violation of properly securing the firearm and ammunition, have your weapons confiscated and your child removed from your home by the government do gooders.
Somebody used a Glock and didn’t follow basic Eddie Eagle rules about clearing and demonstrating a firearm’s use.
When I go on longer walks (7 miles or more) I do pass by this school.
A negligent discharge is caused by either ignorance or carelessness. The person can be considered ignorant, if they have not been trained. They are careless, if they disregard their training. Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot Always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use
There is no such thing as an accidental discharge.
Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction

Please HELP me. My problem’s far worse. Right now there’s a LOADED .357 magnum revolver in my giant SUV’s glove compartment. They llive alone and together in my garage for at least 15 hours a day. What am I to do???
Oh no,I want no guns around Prado dam. My ducks, Rough and Tough, were released at Prado and could be injured by children grabbing the evil guns.....
Does this mean the police department’s grenade safety presentation scheduled for next week is postponed?!?
We've all seen that with electric typewriters: they "go-off" all by themselves.
Nope. And the week after that is the dog training presentation.
The gun was on a police motorcycle and a student got a hold of it and pointed it toward the ground, pulled the trigger and the loaded gun did what most guns do when you pull the trigger. The student got scared at the loud noise, dropped the gun and ran into the field. That is what I have heard from later newscast based on student witnesses.
Well, as mentioned earlier, you could take the ammo away from the .357. Even if you only removed one wheel from the SUV, it would prevent it from going out and killing someone.
Either that or disconnect the ground from the battery.
But only the police are sufficiently well trained to possess firearms...
But, but that means I’d hurt their feelings. OMG my Pitador and Great Dnne might even get upset. Then where would I be?
Weapon was a rifle (uh oh it was an AR-15 and we know those have an “evil” disposition to them) mounted on the motorcycle that was part of the display. According to the police spokesperson there are several security measures in place (as to how the weapon in mounted) and several fail safes too.
The latest I heard it was an AR-15 attached to a motorcycle on display for the program. Yes someone should have been close by.
