Indiana Auxiliary Officer Killed in Training Accident

October 10, 2007  | 

A Gary auxiliary officer was killed last week when a fellow volunteer’s pistol discharged a round into his chest.

Kevin Weaver, 49, died of a single gunshot wound at Saint Margaret Mercy Hospital. The incident occurred at Deb’s Gun Range. Weaver was one of three volunteer officers training at the range at the time.

Police say reserve officer Gerald Horton, 52, was attempting to clear his pistol when he was bumped accidentally by Weaver. Horton’s gun fired, mortally wounding Weaver.

“He was a good officer, a veteran, and a good man,” Terry Smith, head of Gary’s PD’s auxiliary officer program, told local media.

My thoughts and prayers are out to all in this case, however, how many of our brothers must fall in training before we learn to handle firearms properly? Keep your finger off the trigger and watch your muzzle discipline! Lives are now shattered due to careless behavior.
