Because of police force resignations and terminations in recent months the town of Reno, Texas currently has only one police officer, Thomas Kirby. Monday afternoon Officer Kirby was examining a new duty handgun when he unintentionally discharged the weapon. The bullet hit his pinky. He was treated at a local hospital and returned to work on Tuesday.
"I would expect that to happen on a gun range," said a former Reno mayor. "If they were having a gun training in the back, it should have been with an unloaded weapon with the clip out."
