SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Officials say a Utah teacher is in good condition after accidentally shooting herself in the leg with a concealed firearm in a faculty bathroom at the elementary school where she works.

Granite School District spokesman Ben Horsley says the gun went off while the woman was in a faculty restroom shortly before class started Thursday at Westbrook Elementary School, in the Salt Lake City suburb of Taylorsville. The teacher was rushed to the hospital.

Horsley says no other faculty or students witnessed the shooting, but some heard the gunshot.

He says the the bullet entered and exited the teacher's leg.

Horsley wouldn't release further details about the woman, but he says she was carrying the weapon legally with a concealed firearm permit.

and kids lose fingers in shop class on occasion, there needs to be a "radial arm saw free zone" campaign.

Kid's fingers are not much of a concern anymore since shop classes are already
dead in (and long gone from) most public skhoolz. Very sad...

It's their brains, souls and futures that are at risk these days!

There's a new omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent guber-god in town that tries to
be all-knowing/all-powerful... It runs those mandatory youth propaganda camps.

I'd still feel that my child would be safer in her class than any other .

Most people only make a dumb mistake once. I'd definitely take my chances here.
