AURORA - Aurora Police are investigating an accidental shooting that occurred in the parking lot of Rangeview High School Monday afternoon.

Police say an employee of the school accidently shot a Rangeview student in the leg. The employee is not a teacher at the school.

It happened close to an hour after school had been dismissed for the day. Police say the two individuals know one another.

Police say the school employee works a second job as an armed security officer. He was giving the student a ride home and was moving his gun to the glove box of the vehicle. While he was attempting to do this, the gun accidently went off and struck the student. He then drove the student to the hospital.

Police say the student suffered significant injury to his leg but is expected to survive.

It's unclear what charges, if any, the security officer faces.

Well that sucks. If i was the parent i would make him/the school pay for damages to my child (mentally and/or physically) but i wouldn't pursue charges. Accidents happen.
