Gun safety applies at all times. It is not clear what this man was doing with his gun unholstered…

Police said at about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, officers responded to a shooting at the Davis Street Baptist Church in Sulphur Springs. Officers discovered a person, who was not identified, had accidentally discharged his pistol and shot himself in the foot.
The victim sustained a minor wound, and no one else was hurt. Police said the shooting happened in the church’s family life center.

On the church’s Facebook page, a post confirms that a man with a concealed carry license shot himself in the foot.
As you may have already known, one of our concealed handgun licensed carriers accidentally discharged his gun last night in our Family Life Center. The bullet pierced his foot and nothing else. He was taken to the Emergency Room where he was treated and sent home. Thankfully, no one else was injured. Please know that safety is our number one priority and we have your best interests in mind. Monty Tipps will be addressing safety concerns with our security team on Sunday morning after the service. Have a great rest of the week and we will see you at the pancake breakfast at 9:00am this Sunday.
The growth of concealed carry, and the increase of open carry, are largely positive developments, and the need for ever improving safety habits should grow along with them.
