[Police Officer’s Rifle Accidentally Discharges In Casino]
On the night of April 19, 2018 a Suquamish Tribal Police officer and a Kitsap County sheriff’s deputy were at the Clearwater Casino in North Kitsap in response to reports of a fight between casino guests.
At about 8:40 pm a Bainbridge Island police officer received a call for emergency backup of the two officers. The emergency had been phoned in by a bystander — not by either of the officers. The caller reported that officers were trying to take someone into custody but the person was resisting. Complicating the response, local law enforcement radios have poor reception inside that particular casino, and no one was able to contact the supposedly-in-danger officers before responding.
The assigned Bainbridge Island officer rushed to the casino, parked, grabbed his rifle and hurried in. Seconds later the officer’s rifle discharged a round into the floor.
His hand was not near the trigger.
The weapon has since been tested by the Washington State Patrol crime lab, but results were
inconclusive. Regardless, the Bainbridge Island Police Department decided to retire the weapon.
The officer whose weapon discharged was not disciplined.
