Recommended Posts

He must have been wearing a shoulder rig, or she was about 3' tall.

I read another article that said it was an iwb holster.

Maybe they meant tugging, not hugging.

It had to be a shoulder holster from the description. But have you ever seen one with an exposed trigger.

Maybe she was on her knees.

Then it all makes sense.

Yep, mouth hug. Just swallowed wrong and ended up in her lungs.

Police said that Miller hugged the officer -- whose name has not been released -- from behind as he was dancing, and the gun discharged.

However, McNair said she also was told her daughter “was being a little flirty†with the officer and the gun fired as they were in a face-to-face hug.

Goldpaugh, who spent several hours with the officer after the shooting, said the veteran beat patrolman was hosting a party at his home and was dancing with his wife when Miller came up behind him and tugged at his waist.

“And the gun went off,†Goldpaugh said. “It’s a fluke accidental shooting.â€

The weapon, a department-issued, 40-caliber Smith & Wesson semiautomatic pistol, was in a holster worn inside the officer’s waistband and was covered by his shirt, Goldpaugh said.

Goldpaugh said the physical evidence from the incident corroborated the officer’s account of the shooting. The officer did not know the woman, who attended the party with other guests, Goldpaugh said.

This story says she’s was hugging on a guy she didn’t know, while he was dancing with his wife. Something ain’t right.

It went of in a IWB holster and he wasn't even grazed? I'm with you all. She had to be in position to pull his trigger. :yum:

Bullets can easily change direction in mid-air.

Just ask the Warren Commission... :-\

Sounds like someone did something stoopid and they cooked up a story after the fact to me.

Yeah, I called BS on this one too. Probably someone did something stupid/embarrassing and now the story has to be custom designed to fit the real thing. And since everyone believes that guns just go off when you touch or even get near them, this will be a hot news story until the media can dig up something juicier.

Well, no one has ever accused the gun haters of having much integrity when it comes to the truth.
