More from the police... A 25-year-old off-duty Bristol officer managed to shoot himself in the leg on January 6 up in Torrington. Police there haven't named him, but I'm sure we'll know who it was by tomorrow.
He was treated at a couple of hospitals and released so that's good. Hopefully the injury is more to his pride more than anything else.
Accidents do happen, even to the most careful officers, but it certainly doesn't help the department now.
