Former police officer Darrell Smith went to a gun shop in Glasgow, Kentucky to look at pistols. He left missing part of a finger.
As reported by WBKO, a former Glasgow police officer was looking at a pistol handed to him by a worker at a gun shop named Barren Outdoors when the gun fired and cost the officer his finger.
Darrell Smith was handed a .380 caliber pistol from under the counter without the worker checking to see if it was loaded. Officer Smith did not check to see if the gun was loaded either.
