A good guy with a gun.

Portland Police Chief Larry O’Dea is under state investigation for accidentally shooting a friend in the back during an eastern Oregon hunting trip last month. O’Dea was on vacation April 21 in Harney County when he fired his .22-caliber rifle, striking a friend once in the lower left side of his back. O’Dea on Friday called it a “negligent discharge.” “I’m very thankful that my friend is OK, and I’m tremendously upset this happened,” O’Dea said.

No plans to go hunting with Dick Cheney.
