School condemned after pupils left in tears by mock shooting - Telegraph
I hated my 6th grade science teacher. Old friggin' biddy thought teaching science was recitation out of a book.The youngsters, aged between 10 and 13, thought they were taking part in a fire drill when an alarm bell rang and they were ushered out into the playground.
But they were left in terror as a man appeared brandishing a gun and appeared to shoot dead Richard Kent, their science teacher, as he ran across a field.
Following a loud bang simulating a gunshot, other staff involved in the act rushed to the teacher's aid and appeared to try to resuscitate him.
There was a delay of 10 minutes before weeping pupils were taken back to the assembly hall where teachers explained that the pretend shooting had been laid on as part of a science lesson.
But some of the children were left in shock with some being sick and one girl suffering a panic attack, parents claim.
