Texas town's only police officer unintentionally shoots himself in hand while checking out new gun

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."
Ohh shoot.
