A city police officer suffered a gunshot wound to his thigh after what police described as an accidental discharge of his handgun.
The officer, Juan Santiago, was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport with non-life threatening injuries, police told the Hartford Courant.
The shooting occurred about 8:40 a.m. at the Bagel King restaurant at 3550 Main St. The firearm Santiago accidentally fired was not his police-issued handgun, police said.
In 2018, Federal reinvented the Hydra-Shok bullet design with Hydra-Shok Deep in 9mm Luger. Now, it has expanded the line with new loads in 40 S&W and 45 Auto. The bullets feature a more robust center post and a core design that penetrates to critical depths through common self-defense barriers, without over-penetrating.
