10 Really Dumb Gun Accidents


The cop who accidentally shot himself in an elevator

Off-duty police officer Darryl Jouett of Erlanger, Kentucky accidentally shot himself in an elevator in Cincinnati, Ohio in January 2015.

Surveillance video shows Jouett talking to a woman (later identified as his wife) in the elevator while holding a box. He briefly pulls a gun out of his pocket and glances at it. While fumbling to holster the weapon, it accidentally fires near his abdomen. Jouett then falls to his knees for several moments before stumbling out of the elevator and clutching a wall.

Jouett, a 25 year veteran of the force, was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.



The man who was shot by his dog

In 2013, a Florida man was shot by his dog.

Gregory Dale Lanier, 35, of Frostproof, Florida was driving his pick up when his dog kicked a 9mm that was on the floor, causing it to discharge.

Lanier soon realized the gun was loaded when he “heard a boom, saw smoke and felt a burning in his leg.”

The police have determined that the shooting was accidental. (Source)


The police chief who suffered a self inflicted gunshot wound – twice

Connersville, Indiana police chief David Counceller has accidentally shot himself not just once, but twice.

In 1999, he shot himself in the hand while cleaning his service weapon. In 2014, Counceller suffered another self-inflicted wound, which occurred when his sweatshirt jammed against his 40-caliber Glock’s trigger as he attempted to holster the weapon. He was examining a new Glock at a gun shop at the time.

Counceller’s injury was minor and he was able to drive himself to the hospital, where he said nurses laughed at him when he said he’d shot himself. Even more embarrassing for Counceller – he is currently running for Fayette County sheriff. (Source)

One of Aguilar’s roommates told police Aguiar had been playing around with the borrowed gun and decided to take a selfie without realizing it was loaded.

The DEA agent who accidentally shot himself while conducting a presentation on gun safety

“Do as I say, not as I do” is an aphorism we usually associate with those who give others instructions or advice or guidelines that they themselves don’t follow. That phrase springs to mind as an apt description of an incident involving a U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agent who accidentally shot himself while presenting a lecture on gun safety.

On 9 April 2004, a DEA agent (who has not been identified by name in press accounts) delivered a presentation on gun safety to about 50 adultsand students at an event sponsored by the Orlando Minority Youth Golf Association. Partway through his lecture, the agent picked up his.40-caliber duty weapon and held it up for the audience to see as he announced: “This is a Glock 40. Fifty Cent, Too Short, all of them talk about a Glock 40, OK? I’m the only one in this room professional enough that I know of to carry this Glock 40.” Seconds later the gun discharged, wounding the agent in the thigh (or the foot, or the leg, according to various press accounts).

After the agent inquired to make sure no one else present had been hurt, he gamely limped around the front of the room, turning the mishap into an object lesson for his audience: “See how that accident happened, that could happen to you and you could be blown away.” (A bit of humor occurred a few minutes later when the agent called for his assistant to hand him another gun, and a voice from the audience called out: “Put it down! Put it down!”)

Fortunately, the agent did not sustain serious injury (it isn’t clear from the news accounts and video whether he was actually hit by a bullet or suffered a powder burn to his thigh from the close-range discharge), and he returned to work after being treated at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
