AURORA, Colo. — A student underwent surgery Monday night after an accidental shooting in the staff parking lot outside Rangeview High School.

Police spokesman Ofc. Frank Fania says a staff worker at the school accidentally shot the student in the leg in the staff worker’s car. The student was getting a ride home.

The gun accidentally fired while the shooter was putting it away in the glove box of his vehicle.

Fania says the staff worker has a second job as an armed security officer, so it’s legal for him to have the gun. He is not a teacher at the school and his job as a security guard is not associated with Aurora Public Schools.

The worker drove the victim to Aurora Medical Center South for treatment. The victim is expected to recover.
