    In the US a 12-year-old boy has pointed a gun at his teacher's face and pulled the trigger, but the gun failed to fire because the safety catch was on


    The boy entered a North Scott Junior High classroom in Iowa 31 with a
    .22-calibre handgun and ordered everyone to the floor before he tried to shoot
    the teacher.

    Investigators say when the loaded gun failed to fire, the teacher wrestled
    it off him.

    The boy is charged with attempted murder, having a weapon on school grounds
    and assault while displaying a dangerous weapon.

    He remains in a detention centre.
