LAS VEGAS — The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is reconsidering its holsters after an officer was shot with his own gun on Sunday. 

Officers were adjusting a suspect’s handcuffs when the man slid his finger into an officer’s holster and pulled the trigger, according to NBC 7. One officer was shot in the leg and another was sprayed with shrapnel, police said. Both officers have since been released from the hospital. 

Assistant Sheriff Laz Chavez says he’s concerned that the suspect was able to reach the trigger and has since been reviewing different holsters. 

“It can very well be an equipment issue,” Chavez told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We’re going to look at that and make some determinations of whether or not we need to discontinue the use of some of these holsters and then certainly go into training.”

Lyndon Troung, 28, was arrested during a concert at Allegiant Stadium after police were called to a reported disturbance, according to the Review-Journal. Troung faces charges of battery with use of a deadly weapon resulting in substantial bodily harm, battery with use of a deadly weapon, resisting a public officer with a firearm and discharging a firearm within a structure or prohibited area.
