The employee from the Van Independent School District had stayed for one-on-one training after class with the concealed handgun license training instructor on Tuesday when a mechanical malfunction with his weapon caused his gun to misfire, NBC affiliate KETK reported.
The bullet ricocheted, striking the employee in the left leg; his injury was not life-threatening, the affiliate said.
