RICHMOND, VA. -- It was a close call at the Richmond, Va., statehouse.
Delegate Jack Reid said he was unloading his handgun in his legislative office when the weapon went off by accident, sending a bullet zinging across the room.
It was stopped by a bulletproof vest hanging on the door. No one was injured. Reid said the gun discharged while he was removing the clip.
Looking somber and shaken, Reid apologized to fellow lawmakers in a brief floor statement.
He does have a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
