Stray Bullet Injures 4 Mount Juliet Students Resident Says He Was Hunting Turkey On His Property

MOUNT JULIET, Tenn. -- Four elementary students in Wilson County are recovering from minor injuries after a stray bullet landed on school grounds.

Sheriff Terry Ashe said a man was hunting turkeys on his farm behind Gladeville Elementary School. A single shot, fired from about 125 yards away, hit a tree on the school playground.

Pellets and debris fell from the tree, hitting four fifth-grade girls. The school was locked down for about 40 minutes but was dismissed on time at 2:15 p.m.

School officials said the girls were not badly hurt, and the hunter is not in trouble, though Ashe told him to be more careful.
