accidental shooting

(POCATELLO, ID) – A man was hospitalized Saturday afternoon when he accidentally shot himself in the Lowe’s parking lot in Pocatello. Investigators say the man left his handgun in his vehicle as he went shopping, and likely left his finger on the trigger as he was re-holstering the gun when he was leaving. The man was not cited because he was legally carrying the gun. His injuries are not considered life-threatening.

    That is fictitious! I was there and saw EVERYTHING! His gun was holstered. The trigger was not even showing. He didn’t leave the gun in the car and was reholstering it. He just arrived at the department store. He was grabbed his gun by the holster when it went off. I was watching from the car next to him.
