The 6-year-old boy who shot his teacher at a Virginia school took pride in his actions. This is now revealed by documents in the case that have been accessed by several media outlets. The events occurred in January of this year at a Virginia elementary school, and only now are the details surrounding the shooting coming to light.
On Jan. 6, an elementary school student went to school with a firearm. In his classroom, the boy pulled out the gun and pointed it at Abby Zwener, his teacher. When the teacher asked him what he was doing with the gun, the 6-year-old fired a shot. The shot hit the teacher in the hand and shoulder.
The students and teacher fled, and the 6-year-old shooter stayed in the classroom. According to the documents, when another teacher entered the room to see what happened, the boy blurted out the following words, "I did it … I shot the b**ch dead."
The boy’s crude and cold words have shaken the public, which was shocked by the 6-year-old's actions. According to Zwener, the boy had previously exhibited violent and threatening behavior in class, for which she repeatedly warned the school administration. But the school ultimately did nothing, so the teacher initiated a legal battle to obtain financial compensation, but without success.
Strangulation in the nursery
According to local channel Wavy, the 6-year-old boy had already attacked his kindergarten teacher once, the teacher said. The minor allegedly put the teacher in a choke hold, leaving her breathless. The child held the teacher until a member of the teaching staff intervened.
While the 6-year-old child does not bear any criminal liability, his mother does. Courts prosecuted her for failing to keep her firearm under proper supervision.
