Police Chief Unintentionally Shoots Himself, for the Second Time

Connersville, Indiana Police Chief David Counceller was shopping for a new handgun last year when he unintentionally discharged his service Glock handgun.  Newly released surveillance footage from the gun store shows the incident.

According to Counceller, the Glock "got tangled in my clothing. I was wearing a sweatshirt and a fleece jacket. I felt it go in the holster and I pushed it, but it was tangled in the material which caused it to discharge.  The bullet went into my leg and then into the floor."

The injury to his leg was minor. Counceller said he drove himself to the hospital for treatment and then returned to work.

In 1999, Counceller also unintentionally shot himself.  "I was working third shift as a captain," he explains. "I was unloading [the gun] to take it to the gunsmith and I didn't drop the barrel to see if there was [a bullet] in the chamber. The shot hit my hand. That one really hurt."

Counceller has been Chief of Police in Connersville for seven years.
