The New York Times reports that a teacher at the Parkland, Florida, high school, Stoneman Douglas, where 17 students and teachers were shot and killed was arrested. He allegedly left a loaded gun in a public bathroom.
He realized his error less than five minutes later and heard a shot while he was walking to retrieve his weapon. A homeless man is suspected of picking it up and firing it.
Simpson was indicted with unsafe storage of a firearm. Charges were pressed because the gun could have been picked up by a child in the restroom at the public beach.
