A 6-year-old student shot a teacher inside their first grade classroom at a Virginia elementary school … and now the teacher is fighting for her life.
The shooting went down Friday at Richneck Elementary School in Newport News, with the student opening fire on a female teacher … according to police.
Cops say the teacher, who is in her 30s, suffered life-threatening injuries … and the 6-year-old child is in police custody after using a handgun in the shooting.
It’s interesting … police say the shooting was not an accident, and it sounds like only a single shot was fired.
The school, which has about 550 students in kindergarten through fifth grade, was evacuated after the shooting … with parents reuniting with their children outside a gymnasium door.
The school already canceled classes for Monday … and the teacher’s condition is said to be improving.
