Suspect grabs officer's gun, fires
Suspect grabs officer's gun, fires A suspect reaching for a cop's service weapon is anything but a new idea. It's happened before, it's been prevented before, officers train for it, and it will undoubtedly happen again. Oddly, this scenario has played out several times recently in different parts of the U.S., with varying results. Most recently an inmate who was taken out of cuffs at a hospital grabbed an officers gun and fired, striking the cop in the leg.
