According to investigator M.C. Parris of the Floyd County Police Department:
The gun fired when the man was reholstering it, causing a bullet to lodge in his left ankle. Based on the investigation, the gun may have discharged after the trigger got caught on the man’s clothing.
No charges are expected to be filed against the man, identified as Anthony Robinson of Rome, since he did have a gun permit.
The wound did not appear to be life-threatening, and the man remained in stable condition Wednesday night at FMC.
