According to Dave Chapman, superintendent of the South Vermillion Community School Corp., the bullet only grazed the high school senior. The male pupil, according to him, called his level of discomfort a “sting.”

According to Chapman, the incident took place in a well-attended vocational law enforcement course that is instructed by Vermillion County Sheriff’s Office deputies, according to WTWO-TV.

He said that one of his students was hit by the deputy’s service pistol inadvertently while they were doing an exercise. “Today during instruction, they were going through certain drills,” he added.

Tim DisPennett, a deputy with the Vermillion County Sheriff’s Department for 19 years, was reportedly placed on administrative leave as police investigated the shooting, according to Indiana State Police.
