SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office says an off-duty officer has died after accidentally shooting himself in the groin at an area gun range. An office spokesman says the adult probation officer shot himself at the Bullet Hole Gun Range on Monday. He was flown to a San Antonio hospital where he later died from the injury. The spokesman says foul play isn’t suspected.
The officer’s identity hasn’t been released. It’s unclear what caused the accident. A sheriff’s office representative tells KSAT-TV the officer had worked for the probation department for 24 years.
