what are the details
Abby Zwerner, the first grade teacher who was shot has filed a legal notice that informs her school district that she plans to sue over the incident that nearly killed her.
That notice revealed shocking incidents the concerned 6-year-old student had with his classmates and other staff at Richneck Elementary School.
According to the statement, the student had a history of swearing at teachers and students, once attempting to whip his fellow students with a belt, and even choking another teacher “until she could not breathe,” according to the Associated Press reported. And the day before the shooting, he is said to have destroyed Zwerner’s cell phone.
This unnamed teacher, who was choked, confirmed the incident in an interview with the AP.
She said the boy appeared behind her in 2021 as she sat in a chair in front of the class, locked his forearms in front of her neck and pulled hard back and down. She said a teaching assistant pulled the boy off her. The teacher asked for anonymity because she fears possible retaliation from the school district. She said she reported the incident to the school administration but didn’t get the kind of supportive response she was hoping for.
Zwerner’s memo alleges that the school “exhibited gross negligence and willful negligence” because then Deputy Principal Dr. Ebony Parker failed to report a “known threat”. Several teachers and administrators reportedly knew the student was in possession of a gun but allegedly did not take action against him, allowing him to attack Zwerner.
In addition, on the day of the attack, Zwerner had repeatedly informed the school administration about the boy’s violent behavior.
dr Parker left school last month. The Newport News School District also lost connection to Superintendent George Parker.
The boy was taken to a medical facility where he is receiving medical attention, the AP reported. Officials said no more. The child will likely avoid criminal charges.
Meanwhile, Zwerner continues to recover.
