GUN GOES OFF IN WALMART BATHROOM

Police say a small handgun went off inside a Virginia Walmart restroom when it fell out of a man’s pocket as he pulled up his pants. It happened last Tuesday at the store in Midlothian, prompting an evacuation and police response. Police say two other customers in the restroom were not hurt. The round went into a bathroom stall. Investigators say they gun owner… 66 year old Clifford Shook Jr…. left the store without notifying anyone about what happened. Police tracked down Shook after reviewing video surveillance and interviewing a person who had been with him at the store. Shook has a concealed-carry permit. He is scheduled to appear in court December 9 on a misdemeanor count of reckless handling of a firearm.
