    had a mechanical malfunction with his weapon. With the assistance of the instructor, the malfunction was addressed, but the gun misfired and the bullet ricocheted coming back to strike the VISD employee in the left leg.
    It might be nice to mention that it was a ricochet.

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

      is usually into the ground, but not always.

      Anywhere indoors where a ricochet was possible, means the training was not conducted in an appropriate location.

      Should have been conducted at a shooting range, not the 2nd grade classroom on the first floor (or wherever someone incompetent chose to offer the training).
