Mother pointed gun at kindergarten class--By: Hannah Mikels
A 26-year-old mother of a kindergartner was charged with assault Thursday after walking into the child's classroom, pointing a toy cap gun at students and pulling the trigger multiple times, according to the Star Tribune.
The incident took place Tuesday, a day after the deadly shooting at Virginia Tech, according to the Star Tribune.
Church Hill police and Hawkins County school officials met with Heather Nicole Berg, 26, before charging her with misdemeanor assault, according to CNN.com.
Berg was in the classroom to pay for an upcoming field trip and walked to the middle of the classroom and shot the gun while the teacher's back was turned, according to the Star Tribune.
Police called her actions a "monumental lapse in judgment," according to CNN.com.
