Zwerner’s attorney says the tragedy was “preventable” teacher shot by six-year-old


School ignored many warnings 

On the day of the shooting, Zwerner went to school authorities to report the six-year-old had threatened to beat up another student. 

Toscano claims that three different school employees warned the administration that the child had a gun on the day the Zwerner was wounded. 

Toscano says the school administration failed to follow the safety protocols and did not report it to the police.

A source close to the investigation says that Zwerner had heard the gun rumors and messaged her twin sister saying she was ‘frustrated because she was trying to get help with this child, and for this child, and when she needed help, no one was coming.’ 

One of the teachers warned that the six-year-old had left a boy sobbing after recess. And claimed the child showed him the gun and threatened to shoot him if he told anyone. 

Another teacher informed the administration that she had searched the boy’s backpack. And she was concerned the child had concealed the gun in his pocket.
