Lawyer Alleges That Six-Year-Old Student Who Shot His Teacher Previously Choked Another Teacher “Until She Couldn’t Breathe”

Legal documents show that the 6-year-old Virginia student who shot his first-grade teacher frequently cursed at staff and teachers, chased students around, attempted to whip them with his belt, and once choked another teacher “until she couldn’t breathe.”

In a notice to the Newport News school district, Diane Toscano, an attorney for teacher Abby Zwerner, stated that Zwerner intends to sue.
The Associated Press obtained the boy’s notice of claim, which details prior behavioral issues he had at Richneck Elementary School.
According to the claim notice, the boy allegedly “slammed” Zwerner’s cell phone two days before the shooting, shattering it.  After receiving detention for a day, he returned to Zwerner’s class and shot her as she was seated at a reading table.
The notice expands on the accusations Toscano detailed at a news conference last month.
Additionally, the notice claims that at least three instructors and staff members alerted the school administration several hours before the shooting that they thought the boy had brought a gun to school.  When administrators inspected the boy’s backpack, they did not discover a gun; they did not remove him from class, lock down the school, or call the police.
The claim notice states that at around 11:15 a.m. on that day, Zwerner went to former Assistant Principal Ebony Parker’s office “to advise her that the shooter seemed more ‘off’ than usual and was in a violent mood.”
That same day, the child allegedly “angrily stared down” the school security guard in the lunchroom and threatened to beat up a kindergarten student.
Staff allegedly warned Parker several more times about the boy having a gun, according to the document.

“Assistant Principal Parker should have called the police.  Instead, she did not follow proper protocol and chose to do absolutely nothing,” the claim stated.

  1. So sick of hearing about this kid/incident I could spit. The kid’s a monster, we get it. What’s the goal here though?

    Are there any more incidents we should know of? No, well then, let’s just move on to deliberate:
    Choked a teacher, shot another…. my “Minority Report” instinct informs me that this kid is an irredeemable monster, a sociopath with psychopathic tendencies, the verdict:
    Immediate execution! The risk to society is far too great to consider some leftist rehabilitation scam! This kid carries the DNA of Charlie Manson, Hannibal Lecter, Jeffrey Dahmer and Joey Biden all rolled into one future mass killer!
