After firing a real gun, an officer instructing in safety shoots a student by accident.


Inadvertently shooting a student while instructing a law enforcement course was a sheriff’s deputy.

During a “bad guy drill” he was giving to students at South Vermillion County High School in the US town of Clinton, Vermillion County Sheriff Deputy Tim DisPennett accidentally pulled out a real gun rather than a toy one, according to The Mirror.

A male student was then shot by him and taken to the hospital.

For days on end, hundreds of “possessed sheep” circle endlessly.

Fortunately, the 9.30 am incident, which was the second police training shooting in the US since October, left him with non-life-threatening wounds.

“The incident occurred in the law enforcement classroom where the instructor was reviewing drills with the students when he unintentionally drew his firearm instead of his training weapon and fired it toward a student,” said Superintendent Dave Chapman in a statement. The instructor started first aid right away.

They аrrived аt the school аnd were informed thаt the students couldn’t leаve until the police hаd finished questioning them.
