Michigan Cop Accidentally Fires Gun During School Wrestling Match

A police officer accidentally fired his gun during a multi-school wrestling meet at Fowlerville High School in Michigan on May 5.

Laura Beasley Richardson filmed and posted a video of the incident on Facebook:

In a matter of seconds things can change. Unofficial word is that this was an accidental discharge. All our wrestlers are safe. We are blessed.

The Fowlerville Police Department said an off-duty officer was standing on the gym floor and his gun accidentally discharged, notes MLive.

However, it’s not clear exactly how the shooting occurred, and the police department would not identify the officer.

Some people hurried out of the gymnasium, and one witness was treated for a twisted ankle.
