National Guardsman accidentally shot self at SFO

National Guardsman accidentally shot self at SFO

Quote:
A National Guardsman accidentally shot himself at San Francisco International Airport while trying to remove his gun from his holster.

Louis E. Alvarez, a National Guard Specialist, was going off duty at about 11:00 p.m. Friday when the accident happened, according to Sgt. 1st Class Tom Jacobs.

He was going through a procedure to make sure his M-9 pistol was clear of ammunition when he had trouble removing the gun from its holster and it went off. The shot went through his hip and exited at his buttocks.
Luckily it was his pistol that fired and not his M-16.
