Newtown teacher resigns after bringing loaded gun to school
Jason Adams, a science teacher at the Connecticut school, was arrested in April for bringing a loaded gun to class.
He was accused of carrying a loaded .45-caliber pistol in a holster while at the school.
Adams has a valid pistol permit, authorities said, but Connecticut state law prohibits possession of firearms on school grounds.
He had been placed on administrative leave.
Adams didn’t immediately return a message Saturday seeking comment.
Newtown Middle School is located less than two miles from the site of the December 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting rampage, which left 20 first-graders and six educators dead.
