Even the Secret Service

Remember the old saw about how "only the police and the military should have guns" which is usually followed by some clap trap about training? Check this out.

The U.S. Secret Service is investigating the accidental discharge of a firearm by one of its uniformed officers near the Russian Embassy.

According to a spokeswman, the incident happened around 3:50 a.m. Wednesday, on the 2600 block of Tunlaw Road NW.

The gun fired while the officer was sitting inside a patrol car. The bullet shatteried the vehicle's window.

No injuries were reported.
