    Sounds as though the officer had another firearm stowed in the closet and the tot found it.
    Doesn't sound as though it was his service weapon.
    I was the EMT on that call. It was his duty Glock 22. He kept it in one of the cheap nylon one size fits all holsters.

    This report states that the officer had it stored on the top shelf of his bedroom closet. He apparently thought that his 4 yr old would never be able to get way up there, but he did.

    The report also claims that the gun was a .45 caliber Glock. It had been left loaded.

    Here is the updated news story:

    - Gun training started early in my household too, but there's absolutely no way I would believe that my 5 and 2 year old daughters could be trusted with something like a gun. I can't even trust them not to hide in a closet and munch on candy. All my guns are locked up.

    - I never ceased to be amazed at what kids can do and how creative they can be when they want to get to something.
