Honolulu Cop Accidentally Fires Gun Inside A Target Bathroom

An off-duty Honolulu police officer alleges he accidentally fired his gun while he was in the bathroom of a Target store on Saturday.

According to KHON, the officer took the Glock out of the holster, put it on the toilet paper dispenser, and accidentally shot it when he went to pick it up.

No one was injured, but the bullet ricocheted off the stall and into the wall of another stall. It’s unknown if anyone else was in the bathroom at the time, but the noise startled shoppers in the store.

The Honolulu Police Department is investigating the incident. This is the third time in the past month that a Honolulu police officer has accidentally fired his gun. In August, an officer died after an accidental shooting during a barbecue. The other incident occurred during an arrest, but no one was hurt.
