Teacher shot by six-year-old pupil sues school

A teacher who was shot by her six-year-old pupil has filed a $40m (£32m) lawsuit against her school, accusing management of ignoring warnings about his behaviour.

The lawsuit, filed on Monday, alleges that Abigail Zwerner told school officials in Newport News, Virginia that the boy was in a “violent mood” hours before he shot her in the hand and chest.
