A teacher at Westbrook Elementary School in Taylorsville, Utah, accidentally shot herself in the leg this morning while preparing to mold young minds in the teacher's lounge. According to KSL TV, "no students were present when the shot was fired," but the teacher is in "serious condition." She was rushed to a local hospital.

KSL TV reports that she had a concealed weapons permit. The Associated Press notes that in Utah, "teachers and anyone else licensed to carry concealed weapons" can bring guns to public schools.

Granite School District spokesman Ben Horsley wouldn't say who the teacher was or how her gun went off.
