A police officer for the University of Illinois at Chicago accidentally discharged his weapon while responding to a report of possible gunfire on the campus this afternoon, but no injuries were reported.
"While responding, the officer drew his gun and accidentally discharged the weapon into the ground," said UIC spokesman Mark Rosati.
Why don't they use the word 'negligently' since I'm sure he didn't 'accidentally' take it out of his holster or 'accidentally' put his finger on the trigger.
No evidence of any other firearms on campus.
BTW. IGOLD Mar 11th.
