CHINO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a police gun accidentally fired during an anti-drug program at a Southern California school and three children were treated for minor injuries.

Tamrin Olden of the Chino Police Department says the gun was mounted on a police motorcycle that was on display at Newman Elementary School when it went off shortly after 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Fire Department spokeswoman Massiel Ladron De Guevara says three students were treated for cuts and scrapes but they weren't hit by gunfire. Two were taken to hospitals and one was released to parents.

Police officers were on campus as part of Red Ribbon Week, a national event aimed at keeping youngsters off drugs.

It wasn't immediately clear why a loaded gun was on the police bike or why it discharged.
