Officer Shoots Self While Cleaning Gun Inside Court Building

After the shooting, a large presence of emergency responders gathered, including police and fire trucks at the scene on Friday afternoon.
FYI: He or she was doing it wrong. The firearm should be unloaded. The gun may still have a round ready to fire after removing the magazine, so that should always be checked and that round should be removed. The gun owner should then look through the barrel to be sure it is not loaded. Next time the officer could injure or kill an innocent person. Just sayin’…[su_csky_ad]
