11 year old Florida boy injured with gun brought to school

An 11 year old brought a gun to school last week and it fired, leaving him injured. From an article:
A boy was shot in the leg at a South Florida middle school. 
A Miami-Dade Schools Police Department spokesman says the shooting occurred Friday afternoon at Redland Middle School in Homestead. Initial reports indicate that an 11-year-old boy brought a gun to school in his backpack, and the gun accidentally discharged inside the bag. 
The wounded boy was airlifted to Miami Children's Hospital in stable condition. 
Police were questioning the boy accused of bringing the gun to school, but no charges were immediately filed. Neither boy was named by police.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
