Merchant should particularly know the importance of securing firearms; he is a police officer in Springfield, Mass. The gun, for which Hartford police are still searching, was his service weapon, reports The Republican, a Springfield newspaper. Meanwhile, Shawn French of Waterbury and his friend spent an afternoon firing blanks from a .22 caliber handgun, "taking turns pointing [it] at each other and pulling the trigger," reports WFSB. The weapon was holding a bit of live ammunition, and French, 22, wound up shooting and killing his friend, according to police. (He briefly tried to maintain a story about mistaking the longtime friend for a burglar, police say.) A police spokesperson called the incident "senseless and preventable."
