Student shot and killed - called "Ultimate breech in firearms safety"




Report from MyFoxATLANTA
GBI - Georgia Bureau of Investigation

Veteran firearms instructor, teaching correction officers, was using a live firearm inside a classroom when the training should have called for a plastic training gun instead. He was demonstrating firearms tactics to the young, 24-year-old woman, when he drew his service weapon and shot her.

My heart goes out to all involved in this sad - and clearly an accidental - event.

This tragic and unfortunate event is a reminder to reinforce core gun handling safety measures at all times.
