NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Police in the Virginia city of Newport News say a 6-year-old student shot and wounded a teacher at his school during an altercation inside a first-grade classroom.

No students were injured during Friday's shooting at Richneck Elementary School.

Steve Drew, the city’s police chief, said this was not “a situation where someone was going around the school shooting.”

One frightened parent said her ”heart stopped" when she got a text message from the school saying one person was shot and another was in custody.

Newport News is a city of about 185,000 people in southeastern Virginia known for its U.S. Navy shipyard.
