Accidental Shootings Prompt Concern

Associated Press - April 27, 2015 6:18 am

Police say two people who were in custody in Dallas after authorities found a missing baby knew the mother who was shot to death at her Kansas home.

Police say two people who were in custody in Dallas after authorities found a missing baby knew the mother who was shot to death at her Kansas home.

South-central Kansas authorities are expressing concerns about accidental shootings.

Wichita police Lieutenant James Espinoza says there have been seven accidental shootings in the city through April 20th. In the past couple weeks alone, a 32-year-old woman died in her home. Her husband told police he was removing his gun from its holster when it discharged. Also killed was a 28-year-old man who accidentally shot himself in the thigh.

Wichita police Captain Jeff Weible said the department encourages people to “practice good firearm safety.”

As of July 1st, no training will be required for someone choosing to carry a concealed weapon, to holster a hidden gun or carry one in a purse or backpack. But Sedgwick County sheriff’s Lt. Lin Dehning says training remains worthwhile.
