Let’s get this straight.  there was no accidental discharge.  This is a NEGLIGENT discharge.  A sloppy instructor made a VERY bad mistake that could have been prevented.  If this was a member of the general public that had a permit, their permit would be yanked on the spot.

In a nutshell, on March 8th, New Haven was running a training program for their officers.  During a break, some officer(s) had asked a question of the instructor.  The instructor failed do make sure his firearm was safe and there was a negligent discharge.  This discharge resulted in shrapnel injuring two officers.
