Police reports obtained by MLive/The Bay City Times via a Freedom of Information Act request state Brown, the school’s resource officer, at about 12:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 11, was in the school’s robotics classroom with another teacher. They used a force machine to test the trigger pull on Brown’s personal Springfield EMP 9mm handgun.
After the pair left the room, Brown returned alone and used the machine to test the trigger pull on his .380-caliber Sig Sauer, another personal handgun that he brought into the school that day. The gun was not empty of bullets and the experiment caused the gun to fire a round through two pieces of drywall. The projectile entered a classroom containing about 30 students, traveled toward the ceiling, scraped a tile, proceeded to hit a cement wall, ricocheted off it, careened across the room, and struck teacher Brenda Amthor in the neck.
Bay County Sheriff’s Deputy Adam Brown was in court Thursday, Jan. 26.
Ramblin’ Ray Stevens said about the story “this is what happens when students go into robotics instead of football!”
All accidental shootings aside, we still think that those robotics jobs would be the better career decision.
