An Indiana police chief running for county sheriff said it was “pure carelessness” that led to him shooting himself in the leg…while shopping at a gun store!  Connersville Police Chief David Counceller, who is running for Fayette County sheriff, said he had his 40-caliber out of its holster Saturday to compare it to a newer model Glock at Wulf’s Gun Shop and the gun accidentally discharged a round while he was returning it to the holster!  Counceller said. “I felt [the gun] go in the holster and I pushed it, but it was tangled in the material which caused it to discharge.” Luckily he was able to drive himself to Fayette Regional Health System, where he was treated for a flesh wound to the upper portion of his right thigh.  The chief joked about how the incident could raise publicity for his campaign.
