Never say Never. However, you stand more chance being injured by the brass case than by the bullet.
THERE WERE SOME TENSE MOMENTS AT THE Grand Forks POLICE DEPARTMENT TODAY. THE BUILDING WAS PUT INTO LOCK-DOWN WHEN THERE WERE REPORTS OF SHOTS FIRED. POLICE SAY JOHN HAMMEN CAME TO THE LAW ENFORCEMENT CENTER ABOUT 10 O'CLOCK THIS MORNING TO USE THE SHOOTING RANGE WITH AN OFFICER. WHILE WALKING UP THE STAIRS HE DROPPED HIS BOX OF AMMUNITION... AND ONE OF THE ROUNDS WENT OFF. POLICE WHO HEARD WHAT THEY THOUGHT WAS A GUN SHOT RUSHED OUT OF THEIR OFFICES WITH THEIR GUNS DRAWN... TOLD HAMMEN TO PUT DOWN HIS GUN AND PUT HIS HANDS UP. THEN THEY HANDCUFFED HIM AND TOOK HIM TO AN INTERVIEW ROOM. KERWIN KJELSTROM: a freak accident is all we can label it as now and there wouldn't be any charges resulting from that. You drop a box of ammunition and one round goes off... Its just an accident. THEY SAY HAMMEN DIDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG AND WAS LET GO A SHORT TIME LATER
