Excerpt:

Officer Kevin Wilkins was accidentally shot and killed as he attempted to install a rubber grip on his service pistol.

He had removed the magazine from his service pistol but neglected to remove the round from the chamber. As he installed the grip the weapon discharged and he was struck in the face.

Nearby officers immediately called for assistance and provided aid, but Officer Wilkins succumbed to the wound approximately 15 minutes later.

Officer Wilkins had served with the Atlantic City Police Department for two years. He is survived by his father, three siblings, and fiancee.

Yet another reminder that complacency kills. Don't just unload your pistol, CHECK TO MAKE SURE IT IS UNLOADED BEFORE YOU WORK ON IT!
