Man adjusting his concealed weapon unintentionally discharges gun in movie theater

An off-duty Correctional Sgt. with the California Dept. of Corrections and Rehabilitation was at a screening of "The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn - Part 2" at the Regal Cinema in Sonora, California. He told police "that he's walking up an aisle looking for a seat in the theater, while doing so he was adjusting his off-duty holster and somehow the strap came undone and the firearm discharged."
The bullet ripped through an armrest and landed on the floor. A woman said she was hit from shrapnel but details are unclear.
A woman who was at the movie with her daughter told reporters, "What was rolling through my mind was the Aurora, Colorado issue, so I didn't know if this guy was going to shoot us."
Police confiscated the gun and are investigating the incident. So far, no charges have been filed.

Another sad example of a trained individual whose profession authorizes them to carry a weapon experiencing a serious "oops." Glad no one was seriously injured.

Firearms don't spontaneously discharge when "adjusting" a holster.
