Can't wait to hear how this one plays out.
Off-duty Detroit cop, carrying a department-issue .40 cal S&W (model, anyone?) in some sort of belt holster, dancing with his wife at a party. Another woman comes up behind him, hugs him. Weapon fires, hitting the second woman in the chest. She dies.
Cannot figure out how this could happen. Not with a belt holster. It's being called accidental at the moment, but I'm having a hard time buying that. Negligent, sure. But not "accidental." For a weapon carried barrel-down (and I've not seen a barrel-up belt holster), it's just not going to fire backwards and up while in the holster. She had to have put hands on it.

Woman hugs off-duty Detroit police officer — and dies after his gun goes off | City of Detroit | Detroit Free Press | freep.com
something is fishy about that story leaves alot of questions unanswered
gun control is being able to hit your target
Maybe it was exotic dancing

Aren't holsters supposed to "cover the trigger" when the gun,and holster are properly matched? Sounds like a serious F up on the owners part.
The woman that died was the one that hugged the Officer from behind and she was shot in the lung and then heart is what the links are saying now. So that would make since if it was a shoulder holster. Some SOB holsters carry the pistol horizontally but I don't se how that would have hit her where it did.
I’ll say it sounds strange to me how it could happen. This is one to keep following.
The angles don't seem to add up from the story.
Something is NOT right!
