911 dispatchers are supposed to take phone calls reporting crimes, not become a victim themselves. From Albany:
A 911 dispatcher checking her gun's safety switch accidentally shot herself in the leg while at a Taco Bell drive-through at 11:10 a.m. Thursday, police reports stated. Although injured, Jeanita Fulmore, 28, drove herself to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, Albany Police spokeswoman Phyllis Banks said. Police responded to the shooting and met Fulmore at the hospital. "She reached into her center console for her purse," Banks said. "Her 9-millimeter handgun was under her purse. When she took the gun out to check the safety, she pointed it down and it went off."
