Administrator Warned About 6 Year Old With Gun Identified

(Newport News, VA)  —  An administrator at a Virginia school reportedly failed to act and prevent a six-year-old student from shooting his teacher.  First grade teacher Abby Zwerner was seriously injured after a boy shot her in the chest of her classroom at Richneck Elementary in Newport News back in January.  A letter expressing Zwerner’s intent to sue identifies Assistant Vice Principal Dr. Ebony Parker as the school official who was allegedly told three times that the student was armed and failed to call police, evacuate students, or lock down the school.  The letter also claims Parker knew about the student’s behavioral issues dating back to his time as a kindergarten student, when he allegedly choked a different teacher.
