While removing his handgun from his holster, a guard lost his grip and, according to reports, in attempting to grasp the weapon, accidentally hit the trigger. The bullet grazed the pants of another guard standing in the same room.The close call took place inside the Protection Technology Los Alamos (PTLA) building. PTLA is the subcontractor that provides security services to Los Alamos National Laboratory.PTLA General Manager Ken Freeman declined to comment on the incident, saying rather than comment, he would defer the questions to LANL public affairs.“There was an accidental discharge of a firearm,” LANL spokesman Kevin Roark said during an interview Friday afternoon.
