“A police officer at the University of Texas at Austin accidentally shot himself yesterday. Cory Morrison was standing outside a patrol car, talking to fellow officers, when his handgun went off and sent a bullet into his right leg, a local TV station reports. Police did not say whether Morrison was handling the weapon at the time. Officers are trained to keep a round in the chamber when their guns are holstered.” – News item from The Trace email blast.
