Miami cop accidentally shoots Publix shopper when reaching in pocket, police say

An off-duty Miami police officer accidentally shot a female shopper at a West Kendall Publix on Wednesday afternoon.

The officer had been waiting in line at the Publix at 16800 North Kendall Dr. when he reached into his pocket and accidentally fired his handgun about 12:15 p.m.

A bullet ricocheted off the ground and “grazed” the shopper. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue treated the woman for a minor injury, but she was not taken to a hospital, Miami-Dade police spokesman Detective Lee Cowart said.

The off-duty officer is not expected to be arrested because the incident was an “accidental discharge of a weapon,” Cowart said. But police are investigating the circumstances leading up to the shooting.

Ok, someone’s got to say it, I guess it’s my turn. “Suppose it was one of us ordinary folks?”

Was his gun in his pocket? Defective gun defense? I'd say more like defective cop defense! Time for a little desk duty!

Of coarse and I'll answer. You have the right to remain silent. Gun would be taken as evidence and you'd be charged. Pending a review by States attorney office as to what charges.

Was this LEO charged with anything, any disciplinary actions at work. I don't mean x numbers of days suspended with pay either.

Given the majority of cops are NOT gun guys, they have just as much chance of pulling this stunt as does the average Joe.

The only police and military should have guns tag line comes from the brass( read politicians cause that's all brass are), politicians and elitist cops which are not the majority.
