An 11-year-old boy accidentally shot a teacher with a pellet gun at a Queens school Monday afternoon, police said.
According to a police spokesman, the youth brought the BB gun to I.S. 5-Walter Crowley Intermediate School, located at 50-40 Jacobus Street in Elmhurst, around 2 p.m.
As he was showing it to his friends inside the auditorium, it accidentally went off striking a teacher in the ankle.
The teacher declined medical attention and the gun was confiscated from the student.
