A Met guard was taking his .38-caliber Colt out of the holster to clean it in the basement, when the gun accidentally discharged. The man, in his early 50s, was taken into the hospital and is doing “ok” for someone who shot himself in the leg.
“It was an accident and accidents happen,” a maintenance worker who has worked at the Metropolitan Museum of 32 years said. “He’s very pleasant, always saying ‘hi’ to everyone.”
Wait, the Met guards have guns? Apparently, this pleasant gent here was one of the few gun-carrying guards, stationed on a rotating, secret schedule daily, lest something more serious than an ass attack happens. (Image: NBC)
