This article is sadly mistaken in the pacification of the incident.  It is NOT common with proper training.  If this was a normal citizen with a permit or an armed guard, they’d have no permit until an appeal.

Another reason officers should have to have pistol permits to do their job.  This is happening a lot more with trained law enforcement over citizens with a permit.

According to the neighbor’s account, confirmed by Emerman, Detective Shirley Conyers was in her home on Sept. 24 cleaning her firearm when it accidentally discharged, sending a bullet through the window of the neighbor’s home.

No one was injured during the incident. The neighbor, who asked to not be identified, said he will not press charges.

Sadly, you get idiotic statements like:

“Very often weapons are presented, usually every day at roll call, so it comes into the holster and out of the holster at least once a day and it adds to the fact that there is an accidental discharge,” said DeCarlo.
