A 6-year-old kindergarten boy brought a loaded handgun with him to school in Houston, Texas. The gun fell out of the child's pocket on to the cafeteria floor and discharged. Three students were injured by the bullet and bullet fragments. The boy was wounded in the foot, another 6-year-old boy was wounded in the leg and a 5-year-old girl was wounded in the foot. The injuries are not considered life-threatening.
A 5-year-old girl who was sitting at the same table as the boy with the gun told reporters about hearing the gun go off. "I knew it was a gun because a gun goes 'pow'" she said. "I got really scared."
Police are trying to determine where the child got the gun.
