CONNERSVILLE, Ind. – Shooting himself in the leg is not the way Connersville Police Chief David Counceller planned to promote his candidacy for Fayette County sheriff.
Counceller’s 40-caliber Glock handgun accidentally discharged Saturday afternoon while he was at Wullf’s Gun Shop. Counceller, who was off-duty at the time, said he’d been examining a handgun similar to the one he carries.
Cops wear alot of gear and a hang-up like this is inevitable.
On the plus side, the firearm would likely be in the holster
every time this type of errant rigger-pull occurred, so the only
damage expected would be to the officer's leg...and ego.
