    Weapons, when not in use, need to be in Secured Holsters, NOT in WaistBands, or other "slip & slide" locations.....

    I am not sure what he thought he was doing, but especially being a trained officer... he was doing everything wrong!! Stupid actions on his part..... he got what he deserved... just lucky the woman was not injured as well.

    Two causes, a 25 year vet clearly complacent/stupid with his handling of firearms and just finished dinner with his wife...maybe a drink or two?

    Jouett had just finished dinner with his wife when the shooting occurred, Erlanger Police Sgt. Jon Sterling told the Daily News.
    Sterling confirmed the woman in the video was Jouett’s wife.

    Jouett, a 25-year veteran of the force, was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center with nonlife-threatening injuries.

    Sterling said Jouett was released Monday morning and would not immediately return to work.

    Police said they were unsure if Jouett had his safety on when he had the gun.

    Probably trying to reholster an AIWB Raven VG 2 while leaving the holster in place.
    Its a great Appendix carry holster but you need to know how to use it.

    edit: on second watch, he's just playing with it too much and it didn't seem to have a holster at all.

    It looks like he pulled it out of his waist band due to it being uncomfortable... maybe not even a holster, then he tried to stick it in his coat pocket and it hung up the trigger on maybe a button or something. Very unprofessional and I think @stg58 had it right...alcohol was probably involved and a lack of judgement.

    proof positive you should not play with your weapon in public. fondling your tool should be done with more privacy.

    Perhaps I should have some sympathy, but I don't. This was not an accidental shooting or even an accidental discharge. This was an act of stupidity that resulted in just deserts IMO.

    Some of the comments below the video on Youtube are worth reading.

    "Internal investigations found the shooting was justifiable." was a good one.

    Anyway, it looked to me like he was conversing with the lady quite readily- "Hey, I'm a cop. Look at my gun. My other gun, however, is much larger. Maybe you would like to see it sometime..." BANG! "Ouch, I dun shot myself..."

    The lady surprisingly reacts with more calm than I thought she would have. She only clasps he hands to her head because a short barrel Glock just went off in the confines of (essentially) a small metal box. It probably hurt her ears like all get out. She then stops the elevator and goes to get more help, and returns each time before the elevator doors shut to collect all the items inside (including the empty shell and the officer's to go box).

    They should give her a badge.

    The lady is his wife.
