Permit holder accidentally fires handgun
Police have arrested 23-year-old Todd Canady after he dropped a handgun while on line at a Dallas Walmart . . . . Police said Canady left the store and then fled when they tried to question him about the incident. He had a permit to carry a concealed handgun, but was booked Tuesday on charges of evading arrest and injury to a child.
Investigators said . . . when he reached for his wallet, the gun fell from his holster and went off.
The bullet first grazed Canady in the back of his leg before ricocheting off the ground. Debris struck two children and a woman's ankle as they were standing in line. They were not seriously hurt.
