A woman celebrating the weekend before her 25th birthday was fatally shot Sunday when she hugged an off-duty police officer while dancing at a party, causing the officer’s service weapon to fire, according to police and her mother.
According to police Sgt. Stephens, the woman “embraced the officer from behind, causing the holstered weapon to accidently discharge.” The bullet punctured Miller’s lung and hit her heart, and she died at a hospital.

WTF…. k my internal bullshit checklist goes: 1) Not April fools day 2) Is the story on other news sites?
It passes both those checks but I’m still trying to figure out how a holstered gun can miraciously spin around, aim at this womans lungs and discharge? That’s it… i’m not hugging any more cops after today… well maybe i’ll hug a few more today just to secure the memories… but after tomorrow i’m done for good.
Thoughts? Help me crack the case guys… I think we might even need to get Mythbusters on this one.
