That sucks....little fingers do fit into the gap along the sides of the holster well.
Glad to hear the leo is going to okay.
While I'm sure this was just a freak accident, I am curious as to the type of thigh holster he was using.
I'm not familiar with any of the holsters designed to fit a light. I'd imagine the mouth has to be large enough to allow the light to fit through... which means little fingers (and keys and pens) can also reach the trigger.
Ouch. that'll wake ya up.
I move to ban little children....then reading.....
...and especially reading to little children.
Officers want to find the child and his parents to piece together what went wrong.
Hopefully, speaking to the child and the childs parents to find out how they were able to get access to the officers gun, what the childs intent may have beenwe dont know if it was accidental or unintentional.
Police say because the gun was in a holster to accommodate the attached flashlight, the trigger was more accessible.
First the article says that they are trying to figure out how the child got access, then explains that, with a flashlight attached, the trigger was more accessible.
Also, they want to know what the child's intent was...
Uh, was this not clearly an accident?
Does anyone think that the child masterminded a plot whereby he secretly arranged for the reading event and changed department policy requiring flashlights, knowing that a trigger would be more easily accessible so that he could intentionally shoot an officer?
Concealed carry would have prevented this.
I fixed it for you.
I carry a G35 with a light in this Safariland:
I don't think a finger could get into this holster but I'll certainly check it out. There is a little opening but not much of one.
Little people fingers are tiny and they're constantly lubricated with snot or spit. It can happen.
Yep, and it's happened before.
That's MY finger, on the trigger. Easy.
This is the second time I've read of this happening.

Time to get a new holster.
I checked it out and I can see a scenario where it could happen. The space is a little bigger than I was thinking. I'm glad this was posted so I will be extra careful although I am pretty damn cautious already.
You will have to give up the light then.
I believe a similar incident occurred not too long ago in Renton, WA. Pistol was an M&P in a Safariland holster. Mooooorissss...ohhhhh Morrrrrrissss! Help me out here!
