Lenexa police say the man had a small caliber handgun in his pocket while dining at the Longbranch Steakhouse last week. Officer Dan Friesen says the man reached into the pocket and accidentally discharged his weapon. His wife was treated and released at a hospital for a wound in the leg.
Police say the man had a valid concealed carry permit and the proper training but the state likely will revoke his permit.
The restaurant's manager says the company is now considering banning customers from bringing in concealed firearms.
"I feel so much safer knowing that there are people out there (properly trained, of course) who just might accidentally shoot me or my children. With well-meaning citizens like that, who NEEDS "bad guys?""
