Abigail Zwerner, the Virginia first-grade teacher who was shot by her six-year-old student, reportedly texted a loved one before the shooting that the child had a gun and school officials were not responding to her pleas for help.
A source told NBC News that the text from Zwerner stated the boy’s backpack carried a gun and administrators at Richneck Elementary School in Newport News weren’t coming to her aid.
“She was frustrated because she was trying to get help with this child, for this child, and then when she needed help, no one was coming,” the source stated.
