Police Chief Accidentally Shoots Himself At Gun Store
A police chief from Connorsville, IN, shot himself in the leg while gun shopping. Maybe he should have been shopping for safety locks instead.
“I need to pay more attention,” David Counceller (pictured on the right) said. “I know what the dangers are. It was pure carelessness on my part.”
Counceller, who was off-duty at the time, was comparing his 40-caliber Glock handgun with a newer model at Wullf’s Gun Shop. The trouble began when he began to holster his weapon.
“It got tangled in my clothing,” he added, as quoted by the Star. “I was wearing a sweatshirt and a fleece jacket. I felt (the gun) go in the holster and I pushed it, but it was tangled in the material which caused it to discharge. The bullet went into my leg and then into the floor.”
