At approximately 1:20pm March 13 at Seaside High, Dennis Alexander, a math and administration of justice teacher who is also a Seaside city councilman and a reserve officer for Sand City Police Department, accidentally discharged his firearm during a gun safety demonstration.

Dennis Alexander told his California high school class Tuesday that he was going to check his pistol to be sure it was unloaded before conducting a lesson on disarming an attacker, parent Fermin Gonzales told KSBW.

One 17-year-old boy suffered moderate injuries when fragments from the bullet ricocheted off the ceiling and lodged into his neck.

Police and school administrators say they are investigating whether Alexander was legally allowed to have a gun on campus.

Alexander has taught the course in the past but Pridgen said he doesn't know if he'd ever brought a live firearm to the school before.

The incident comes amid a national debate on how to protect students from mass shootings like the one that took the lives of 17 students in Parkland, Fla., on February 14.

Seaside Police Chief Abdul Pridgen told the Monterey County Weekly that a male student was "struck in the neck by "debris or fragmentation" from something overhead.' " Pridgen said whatever hit the student was not a bullet. "It was determined that there was no immediate threat to students or staff, and school remained in session", The Monterey Peninsula Unified School District said in a statement.

Ironically perhaps, the school district posted a school safety symposium salted for next week on its Facebook page Monday but posted nothing about the incident at Seaside and the high school did not post anything on its homepage that was visible or on its Facebook page.

Allegedly, while delivering the lecture, Alexander drew out his service gun and pointed it towards the ceiling.

Due to the nature of this personnel incident, we are unable to share any other details. He has been put on administrative leave after the incident.

In addition to teaching, Alexander works as a reserve police officer. "I'm not sure what circumstances led to a firearm being used in this class".

Earlier this month, a teacher from Dalton, Georgia was arrested after he fired at least one shot in his classroom. BTW...there was a police officer in Seaside during my years there.
