WATCH: Woman in Elevator Reacts in Horror as Kentucky Cop Accidentally Shoots Himself in Stomach

05 Jan 2015

A Kentucky police officer is recovering from injuries after accidentally shooting himself in an elevator, authorities said over the weekend.

Cincinnati police told WCPO that Erlanger Officer Darryl Jouett was heading back to his car after having dinner with his wife when the incident occurred on Saturday.

In video released on Monday, Jouett can be seen getting in an elevator with a woman. He holds a box with one hand while attempting to adjust his pistol with his other hand. After fumbling with the pistol several times, it appears to discharge into his stomach.

The woman in the elevator immediately covers her ears while Jouett and his pistol fall to the floor. After being stunned for a moment, Jouett’s quick thinking companion grabs her cell phone to call for help.

Cincinnati police described Jouett’s injuries as non-life threatening.
