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.
