HOUSTON - Officials say three students have been injured after a Houston kindergartner brought a gun to school that accidentally discharged when it fell out of the child's pocket.

Houston Independent School District Assistant Police Chief Robert Mock says the students were injured by fragments after one bullet discharged in the school's cafeteria about 11 a.m. Tuesday.

Police say the student who took the gun to Ross Elementary School was among the three slightly injured.

Houston Independent School District Public Information Officer Norm Uhl tells Fox News that none of the injuries appears to be life-threatening.

Images taken from Houston television KPRC's news helicopter show three children being wheeled to ambulances on stretchers.

All were sitting up and appeared to be talking with emergency personnel.
