Indianapolis police say a gunshot that grazed an officer near the end of a police funeral at Bankers Life Fieldhouse appears to have been accidentally discharged from another officer’s holstered weapon.
Sgt. Kendale Adams said Sunday a female Marion County sheriff’s deputy was hit in the leg during the funeral for Lt. Aaron Allan and has been released from a hospital.
Adams added that a preliminary investigation indicates the shot came from an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer’s gun that never left its holster and ‘may have been some type of equipment malfunction.’
I’m just dying to hear how the gun that never left it’s holster went off all by itself. My revolver’s been on my end table or in its holster all day and hasn’t given any indication that it’s ready to fire. Is there some kind of warning I should be looking for?
