Man shoots himself in an elevator

A Kentucky Officer’s weapon “went off” as he tried to put it away. The bullet bounced off the elevator wall and hit the officer in the stomach.

We hate it when they say that. It implies that guns somehow ” go off”….which they simply do not. Human error plays a part, and certainly was a part of the puzzle here. this man obviously was making several major mistakes at once, all that led up to the outcome of shooting himself and obviously putting the lives of his loved one in danger.

He had his hands full, he had no need to adjust the gun, and he should have been looking at what he was doing.

    It looks like he was getting ready for something. The anticipation of some bad S*** could lie behind the door made him pull the gun and remove the safe.
