At a Wednesday meeting with parents, Highland [NY] Central School District and police officials explained that Officer Sean McCutcheon had been suspended after his Glock .45-caliber pistol “accidentally discharged” in a school hallway at around 1:38 p.m. on Tuesday. Lloyd Police Department Lt. James Janso said that a suspension was standard procedure while the incident was under investigation. Officials offered no further explanation as to why the gun discharged. Some parents at the school board meeting questioned whether having armed guards in schools was worth the risk.
"What if a kid had been killed?" 43-year-old parent Mark Wallen asked. "We got lucky this time and that’s purely what it is."
