MARSHALL COUNTY, W.Va.
a Marshall County officer was shooting at the range Tuesday morning when his service weapon literally blew up in his hand during a round of fire.
“The weapon went to the ground, the range officers were yelling for cease-fires,” he said.
Cecil says it was the first time the .45-caliber pistol had ever been used.”All that energy blew out on the top of his hand. And that’s where his injuries are,” Cecil said.
The deputy is now recovering at home. He’s still undergoing testing to find out the severity of his injuries.
The chief believes bad ammunition caused this bizarre accident, but he’s looking into it further.
