A New Jersey elementary school teacher threatened to shoot his students in the kneecaps if they did not behave in his classroom, police said.
Gualberto Gonzales, 59, the Spanish teacher at Lawrenceville Intermediate School is being charged with harassment after allegedly making the threat Tuesday, NorthJersey.com reported.
Lawrence police Lt. Mark Ubry told NJ.com that the threat was reported the next day after multiple students told their parents about the incident, who called the school to complain. The school then called the police. It was said Gonzales made the threat in an attempt to settle down disruptive students during his Spanish class.
“The teacher said, ‘Don’t make me bring my gun in ‘cause I will shoot your kneecaps off,” Ubry said.
