FBI officer accidentally shoots bystander after dancefloor backflip

Postby DuncaninFrance » Mon Jun 04, 2018 6:33 am

An off-duty FBI agent doing a backflip on a dance floor accidentally discharged his weapon shooting a bystander, police in Denver have revealed.

The gun allegedly fell from its holster as the unnamed man performed the acrobatic move in the early hours of Saturday morning at the Mile High Spirits bar in the Colorado city.

It is unknown whether the officer had been drinking. The male victim was shot in the leg and was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A video of the incident shows the dancing law enforcer surrounded by a group of revelers and, as he executes the flip, the gun drops to the floor.

As he goes to pick it up a flash can be seen as the loaded gun fires before he quickly retrieves the weapon and puts into the waistband of his trousers. :loco: :loco:

The moral of this story is .... Don't pick up a loaded gun by the trigger...... :shock:


Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.
