A gun brought to a Southwest Miami-Dade high school was accidentially discharged this morning, the latest incident involving a weapon at a South Florida school in a week filled with them.
Today's incident happened at Robert Morgan Senior High on SW 122 Ave., when a teacher found a loaded gun in a backpack in one of the school's bathrooms, police said.
Sources said the gun went off when a teacher picked it up, but thankfully no one was injured.
The school was placed on lockdown, with students unable to leave while police investigated the incident.
Yesterday, Miami-Dade police arrested seven students for bringing guns and knives to middle school and high school campuses. One student even brought a Taser.
The discoveries come just two days after 17-year-old Juan Carlos Rivera was stabbed to death at Coral Gables Senior High. Classmate Andy Rodriguez, also 17, has been charged with murder in the incident.
