Kentucky police officer unintentionally shoots self in elevator



Surveillance video captured an off-duty Kentucky police officer unintentionally shooting himself in an elevator in Cincinnati, Ohio.  The officer, Darryl Jouett of Erlanger, Kentucky, was in the elevator with his wife.

The video shows Jouett fumbling with a gun while holding a box.  The gun discharges and shoots him in his abdomen.  Jouett falls to his knees before stumbling out of the elevator and clutching a wall.

Jouett was taken to the hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. He was kept overnight and released the next morning.

Jouett is a 25-year veteran of the police force.

Thanks for the post. People who are really concerned about their security and safeguard may take help from the firearms safety training classes, as most of them can teach you how to handle a gun properly with care, but even though if you are not able to make it then no one can do nothing for you, its simply your fate.
