MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A Catholic school employee in Milwaukee could face charges after a gun accidently fired and injured a student.
The gunshot at St. Josaphat Parish school grazed a 10-year-old student more than two weeks ago. Milwaukee police say they weren’t notified by the school until last week.
Parents of students at the school received a letter in the mail notifying them of the incident. But one family says they didn’t get the letter until this past weekend. St. Josaphat declined to comment on why it took so long for the school to notify police and parents.
School officials say the employee who brought the gun to school has been fired. Police say the employee could be criminally charged in the coming days.
