A teacher accidentally fired a gun inside a high school in Seaside, California on Tuesday. Most of the students attending the class were between the ages of 16 and 17 years, the Californian reported. The student was not seriously injured. Bullet fragments got lodged into the neck of the injured student, the student's father Fermin Gonzales told KSBW.

The student's parents took him to the hospital for an x-ray. But a father told local media he and his wife were shocked when their 17-year-old son came home from school with blood on his shirt and shell fragments in his neck.

An email was sent out by the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District to the parents, stating: "Upon learning of the incident, our Human Resources department, school site administration and the Seaside Police Department immediately began investigating the incident, including interviewing students in the class".

The incident comes amid a national debate on school safety and whether teachers should be armed on school campuses.

"It's just so insane, I can't believe it", he said. Apparently, Alexander was pointing the gun at the ceiling to make sure it was not loaded when it went off.

The teacher, who also served as a reserve police officer, has been identified as Dennis Alexander.

The incident is under investigation.

The letter also stated that the district is unable to share any other details other than Alexander has been placed on administrative leave for the duration of the on-going investigation.

"The safety of your student is always our top priority, and we will continue to remain vigilant in our efforts to keep them safe while they are under our care", the statement said.

It was not clear if the he was placed on a paid or unpaid leave.

Sand City police Chief Brian Ferrante described the teacher's track record as "positive and professional", however, he wondered why he brought a loaded gun in a classroom full of students.

"Best practice is you don't take live firearms into a classroom", Chief Pridgen told CBS. "Clearly in this incident protocols were not followed". Guns and other weapons are prohibited on campus, though there are exceptions involving law enforcement, Pridgen said. He was the department's 2013 reserve officer of the year.

The incident took place in the midst of a national debate about proposals to arm qualified teachers to bolster security at schools following a series of school shootings, including a February 14 attack at a Parkland, Fla., high school that killed 17.
