When a woman hugged a off duty police officer at a party, his .40 S&W M&P pistol discharged killing her.
Everyone involved seems to have a slightly different story. Detroit Free Press said (emphasis added) …
Police said that Miller hugged the officer — whose name has not been released — from behind as he was dancing, and the gun discharged.
However, McNair said she also was told her daughter “was being a little flirty” with the officer and the gun fired as they were in a face-to-face hug.
The weapon, a department-issued, 40-caliber Smith & Wesson semiautomatic pistol, was in a holster worn inside the officer’s waistband and was covered by his shirt, Goldpaugh said.
As jdun1911 said to me “Lots of WTF”.
This story is a week old, but I managed to miss it when it broke last week.
